Being lab rats at Surrey University

Posted on March 5th, 2018 by completelygroup

Today we had a full performance assessment at the Surrey Human Performance Institute. What an interesting experience!

The SHPI is part of the University of Surrey based at their Surrey Sports Park in Guildford. Their team are very kindly helping us prepare for the big ride in August with advice on both our physical conditioning and nutritional intake, before and during the ride. Today’s tests consisted of a Body Composition, Substrate Utilisation, Lactate Threshold Test and VO2max test, and the plan is to be reviewed and progress monitored every two months.

We don’t get the full results for a week or so, but I think it’s safe to say there’s room for improvement over the next five months…
