My trainer is very good in bike fitting. I want to promote moxy for his athletes and in bike fitting. Does anybody know how the moxy could be used in bikefitting scenarios?

If you have Guru bike fitting station than it is even easier. You ride an easy wattage in the STEI intensity and keep always same wattage. Now you change settings in saddle height , length of bike, arm positions with and so on and pedal crank length and you can see, by what position you actually start to reduce or increase tHb Blood flow and whether the change in blood flow as well nl influences the SmO2 reaction as that you for example on a stable SmO2 level you should have in STEI suddenly start to drop due to vasoconstriction form the new position. Easy to make a demo is ride free handed and look what happens in tHb and SmO2 than go on the handle bar height and look and than go into aero position and look and always keep same wattage and it can be on a very low level.. . . This is physiological easy bike fitting. You can do the same by taking lactate or VO2 but this way it is super easy and you can put moxy on 4 or more areas , as in one are you may loos e tHb and in an other are you may improve it. With lactate and VO2 you just have the overall feedback which is great but you do not know , whether some positions where actually better and some very very bad. This is a great concept and it is used not just in cycling but even more in other sports like in ice hockey how to sit on the bench to recover best or how to move in a tennis game in between services and so on. In bike fitting it is super simple as you have all on one spot. Good luck.
