Training zones

Training zones

INSCYD training zones are not generated as fixed percentages of anaerobic threshold, FTP, or other static metrics. Each zone has its own individual origin and is related to an actual performance metric, your current status. For each zone, you will find an upper and...
Metabolic demand & VO2

Metabolic demand & VO2

One of the results of the INSCYDPower-Performance Decoder (PPD) test is the graph of Metabolic demand & VO2 at a given intensity (W or speed). The NAVY BLUE curve shows the metabolic demand at a steady-state and as a function of power/speed (mathematically...
Lactate – production & max. oxidation & concentration

Lactate – production & max. oxidation & concentration

One of the results of the INSCYDPower-Performance Decoder (PPD) test is a graph showing the Lactate production & max. oxidation & concentration. The BLUE curve shows the lactate combustion rate. To recover from hard interval efforts, we use an active recovery...
Lack of pyruvate & lactate accumulation

Lack of pyruvate & lactate accumulation

GREY curve shows a Lack of pyruvate. Below the threshold, so below the crossing point of the blue and red curve (from lactate graf), there is a gap between how much lactate could be combusted in the aerobic metabolism (fuel demand in the currency lactate), and how...
Fat & carbohydrate combustion

Fat & carbohydrate combustion

One of the results of the INSCYDPower-Performance Decoder (PPD) test is a graph showing Fat & Carbohydrate combustion. The GREEN curve shows the fat combustion in kcal/h as a function of speed/power. The apex of the curve +/- 5% is marked with the green area. You...
