VLAmax // Elite Coaches secret weapon disclosed

Updated: May 18, 2023

VLAmax can be looked at from two different sides. From one side, a low VLamax would increase your anaerobic threshold, your fat combustion and it would shorten your recovery time from hard efforts. GREAT FOR IRONMAN!!

On the other hand, a high VLamax increases the power available for attacks, sprints and short efforts. The anaerobic capacity can actually make the difference between winning and losing a race: the final lap, the final sprint, the final push – they are all decided by your glycolytic power.

Vlamax is the most important metric you should focus on and train according to.

You may have never heard of it because up until last year it was used only by pro teams and national federations. But now its benefits are opened to everyone and you can finally start connecting all the dots that compose your performances: metrics, training adaptations, race predictions …

Don’t waste your time training the wrong way. Get tested with us, we analyse your VLamax and tailor your training according to it.
