Training effect indicates the performance and exertion level of an exercise session. Knowing training effect can lead to optimized performance. With QAthlete, view the positive training effect of successive workouts on physical fitness and physical condition during the measurement period. Discover the actual effects of your workout in order to train more safely and more effectively.
EPOC (Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption)
EPOC, or the amount of oxygen consumed after exercise during recovery, is the best parameter for measuring training effect. Harnessing this information is vital for targeting the optimal workout zone in order to improve fitness without overtraining. Using science and mathematics to train your body, QAthlete puts the laboratory at your fingertips to empower users with this valuable assessment.
Physical Workload and Recovery
Efficient and effective workouts are essential to improving physical fitness. QAthlete provides important insight into your body’s response to exercise by allowing you to observe and monitor physical output, workload and recovery. Reports based on scientific measurements allow you to prepare programs based on your body’s specific abilities, enabling you to progress and push the limits of performance without overtraining or risk of injury.
Weight Management & Energy Expenditure, Calories Burned
Effective weight management is exclusively based on the balance of energy intake and energy consumption. While the science is simple many people have a difficult time with maintaining a healthy weight. QAthlete facilitates goal-orientated weight management by providing an exact estimation of the total daily energy consumption as well as the effects of everyday activities on energy consumption.
Daily Momentary Mental Stress and Relaxation
Stress is present in our lives in two major ways: momentary stress and cumulative stress. Momentary stress occurs during our working lives as well as during sleep and can accumulate over time. Continuous increases in momentary stress leads to long-term, cumulative stress which can result in physical and mental breakdown. It is, therefore, important to measure momentary stress, recover quickly from it and understand its effect on our bodies. QAthlete is a proven method of measuring the physiological reactions of stress and recovery. QAthlete is also designed to help and analyze your sleep and improve it.
