Welcome to Science & Cycling
Science & Cycling is a innovative company, specialized in monitoring cycling performance to improve existing training programs, monitor the accumulation of fatigue, peaking at the right time and at improve your overall cycling performance. Science & Cycling only uses scientific validated tests and principles to monitor and improve cycling performance. One of the main monitoring tool used by Science Cycling is the LSCT, a submaximal cycle test, develloped by Dr. Robert Lamberts at the University of Cape Town.
Although the design of the LSCT is published in one the leading scientific sports medical journals in the world (British Journal of Sports Medicine), the correct interpretation of the LSCT is more complex than anlysing the discribed three variables (power, rating of perceived erxertion and heart rate recovery). Based on the clinical experienceof Dr. Lamberts, the use of multiple weighed perfromance parameters (> 6) and the correction for environmental stresses (tempurature and humidity) on the LSCT, Science Cycling is able to monitor small meaningful differences in elite (professional) cyclists. A recent article in the International Journal of Sport Physiology and Performance (Lamerts, 2013) shows that a new multi-variate calculation method accurately predicts PPO, VO2max and 40km TT time in trained to elite male and female cyclists (n=102). In another scientific paper, Capostagno et al. (2013) shows how the LSCT can be used to prescribe training, resulting in better training improvements than a standardised training program.
