Cardio respiratory tests

Testing provides important data about cardio-respiratory functionality which is important for the design of the training programs: an assessment of total and maximum consumption of oxygen (VO2max), aerobic threshold, anaerobic threshold, individual energy training zones, body’s energy consumption while at rest.

Cardiorespiratory fitness is the ability of the lungs, heart and circulatory system to supply your body with the oxygen it needs to maintain a physically active lifestyle.
Cardiorespiratory conditions can restrict your ability to breathe in enough air and deliver enough oxygen to your body when needed— leaving you coughing or wheezing and short of breath. Conditions that limit your cardiorespiratory function can affect your strength, vitality and sense of wellbeing. Responding to these limitations by reducing your physical activity only worsens the situation and reduces your overall fitness level.

Neurokinetic tests

It begins with sessions where the practitioner tests your muscles. This critical test will show which underlying muscle functions are contributing to your discomfort, your practitioner will pinpoint them using localized muscle testing.

NKT is based on observations that certain body parts compensate for other weaker ones. Essentially, a muscle or tissue might weaken and “shut down” following injury, while others are forced to work non-stop and make up their shortcomings. This concept is also known as the body’s “muscle compensation patterns.” These patterns are observed in people experiencing noticeable weakness and pain, but also often appear to some degree in those who are generally healthy and strong.

Anthropometric measurements

Anthropometric measurements are a series of quantitative measurements of the muscle, bone, and adipose tissue used to assess the composition of the body. The core elements of anthropometry are height, weight, body circumferences (waist, hip, and limbs), and skinfold thickness.

These measurements are important because they represent diagnostic criteria for obesity, which significantly increases the risk for condition such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and many more. There is further utility as a measure of nutritional status in children and pregnant women.

Athletic motor skill test

As part of General Initial Assessment, motor skill tests are used to provide information about the current physical status of the athletes and the level of their performance. These tests are gathering the necessary data about the athletes’ motor and physical abilities such as strength, endurance, balance and mobility.

In Be Strong approach, these results are being used as guidelines for the corrective program, if needed, creating periodization and training blocks but also as indicators of a possible risk of injury. Results are being carefully stored in our database where we compare them with the data obtained from re-tests after a certain period of time is required for corrective program or after accomplishing a certain cycle of training written by periodization.
