In the final installment of our three past series covers five tests you can and should do yourself to optimize your performance. Rather than focus on testing for marginal gains, like functional threshold, ESP recommends addressing the bottlenecks. Some of the most important assessments include:
Assessing strength specific for good movement and balanced muscle development
Estimating maximum 30 sec and VO2 max (run) pace or (bike) power
From this list, you can easily see that the last three can be easily ascertained during actual training sessions.
