The interesting part in exercise physiology or in testing by centers and coaches is, what we all learned in school. In a test you can fail, so you come either prepared or you call in " sick"
What we do with MOXY is not at all a test, it is a physiological assessment at a given time without any specific preparation to create an "artificial" test result. We use physiological assessment to seem, why we have a certain result or a certain performance. as well we us e an assessment to see, whether we need a recovery phase or whether we can change to load accordingly to the assessment. The beauty really would be to have an assessment every time you go for a workout or even in a race. With MOXY we can do that easy fast and have immediate feedback. No failure just real information, why on a certain day the performance was very different than expected. As well it is the direct feedback to be used in combination with performance lie wattage, weights we lift , resp we do and so on,. So really the future may be very different. We may not test at all in the lab but may in fact start to test certainly in game sports the athletes in the field during a game and than assess and see, whether the performance demand in the game is very different than the performance load we may offer in a workout. . The workout may be super hard but may in fact not even close cover the physiological needs of the specific sport we may do. So here a nice example form Basket ball from a Swiss information ( Courtesy A. Feldmann Swinco ) this is a simple assessment and based on this we can see, whether a training idea is challenging metabolically close the demand we see in the game situation. As so often this looks confusing if you are not used to the picture as of yet. Green is metabolic demand SmO2 trend and brown is delivery situation ( blood volume flow ) So here the next explanation to what was done. Not to go into too much details here how you take the information apart. 1. Look metabolic trend alone SmO2 than look delivery alone Than you can start playing with polynominal to have a very easy fast overview on the trend on metabolic demand and delivery ability. And than you can go for a closer look, where physiologically the trends start to show a very different reaction, than what you would expect. Here a short closer view. Go back and see, whether you find, where we took that snap shot
