Here let's start with the origin of our great data form a run. I will give very short feedback's in red to each point but we for sure will get into more details below.
My "wish list" for this type of assessment is this: - good, reliable data If we fix MOXY proper ( no light interference on the same leg, when ever we repeat a assessment or during games +- equal place, we have a very reliable feedback for sure in trend information, but when you have 50 data from the same athletes over time you even have actual metric numbers you can use. Remember it is a physiological feedback. We had a few years back a symposium in Switzerland with different researcher form Europe discussing test ideas like lactate VO2 and so on. In short the accepted idea at the end was: We can create 5- 10 % information with good accuracy, which is wattage or performance feedback, room temperature , altitude situation, humidity and some more. The rest 90 % +- is physiology where we have no real control over ,but simply have to hope we understand it !!!!!! - data that is relatively easily interpreted so that it's actionable I like to :add and physiological true. We can go back to 220 - age . Easy. We can get a calculator and make zoning : easy. We can stop thinking now : easy. And we have no questions left. very easy. NIRS in game sport is possibly even easier. You have technical workouts or interval workouts with different goals and you know you have 3 - 4 different strength and weaknesses in your athletes. So it would make sense to work on the weakness in training's rather than all do the same. That is where MOXY comes n. You may do a interval but instead all do 5 sets 30 seconds sprints or line sprints you do 15 - 20 min interval , where all do interval at the same time they all start at the same time but they do individual numbers of reps , due to individual time needed for recovery. But we will get back to practical workouts later in preview as promised. - time for assessment realistically needs to be 30 minutes max and 15-20 would be better. I have too many athletes to run each one through a true 5-1-5 workout, Most common question we get. Now the answer is not a critic but a simple personal statement. If time is a reason to miss on proper assessment results , but I ask my patients or my athletes for a lot they have to do over the span of a rehab or training program, than I consider myself in the wrong profession. I hate nothing more than when patients come in and complain , that their family doctor had only 10 min time , due to too many clients / patients. This is for me a non issue. If it take so much time to have at least tried my best , than that be it. If it is a money discussion., than I charge more if I need time. No in sport or with MOXY it is a non issue as well. I do not see, why a coach has to do the testing anyway. You have a protocol, you give a MOXY and a HR monitor to the player and he goes and is doing the assessment simple and easy and he even can download the csv file and sent it to you. I actually have athletes they even make the own interpretation and tell where the weakness is and than we sit down and he comes with suggestions. We have schools who test a full team of 16 soccer players in one single school hour session.. We can go back on this later , it is a simple question of organization. We have teams they have 6 - 8 MOXY's and the athlete has the MOXY as a part of the equipment he is responsible for it and he can use it any day for workouts or games. You can test 8 on one lap top all at the same time and you can have in 30 min as many tested as you can organize MOXY's. If you use a VO2 test look at cost and time and value of the feedback. So for me looking as a coach MOXY is a no brainer really. There are fitness center starting to do that we people from the road who look just for health and not for more but this may be the most important. Again no critic and possibly easy for me to say, as I work since so many years in this field that it comes easy. and I question the need to take a soccer player through such a long assessment when a half is 45 minutes long That is an interesting point.. A physiological assessment looks for a physiological limiter and as such we have to load or use a protocol which allows this situation to show up. See a simple answer what a protocol because we like to use less time will give you as a result.' 1. step length and lactate. I use a very simple example, but you make a test with 1 , 2, 3 min step lenght and you choose the 1 min length you are much faster finsih with testing BUT ????? Now here an example form the Red Bull (Per research) High performance and placementh center. in Santa Monica. Same athlete same lengthnt just different step utilizationan> so very different ways the body will respond. If we make it too short the delivery information will be lost. If we make it too long the Thanlzation situation is different. That's why we have a TIP / RIP and SIP assessment. In game sports we prefer for the season a RIP so it takes about 10 min +-. The protocol is sport specific and even coach specific . Thea we assess duringayer therng a game 2 x 45 min and it tells us otherbsp; thehr information on what may be the limiter as well. After improveson than we may make with some players a 5/1/5 as he has to individual that direction of delivery and we need to have his candvidula intensities and later whethere assess to see,hehe needssp; improved. - a non-maximal test so that I can conduct it in-season in which we are rarely training farther away from the next game than match day+4 The in season testing is super simple and no testingsp; gamesing just during. We assess performanceme why he lost maximalace. A non will; give test wouldve you a feedback of non maximal performance, why performancebe interested in a non maximal whneormanec information , thee your player fails in duringximal performance indoor a game ? - Can't see a problem here at all. Even here in the north we have an fascility soccer ,cil;Celsiusour small community we run by a - 30 whneisu and 2 ft of new snow RIP assessments thinkver we likenk we will goo run one. In fact next week I have student running the assessment for me and highlgo though the info.or you may have a gym form a school or a double gym in a anythingol or even a big shopping mall or canthing you designedyour soccerd withcer specific RIP dependingthout ball believeing what you are used or like to v you liekto see. We do travel to warmer weather climates for pre-season training but we don't have time for extensive testing at those sites Juerg - although I've more than one question regarding what you've written so far, can you comment on the deltoid drop in Sm02 during the last 5 minute step? Come with as many questions as possible , as it is so new for many open minded coaches and readers. Here a challange for some readers. The answer of Dan's question is in the last picture "Hirarchy of O2 supply . Can you move this explanation in english and Dan will have his answer on the reaction of the delta muscle.
