What Is INSCYD?
INSCYD is a remote, protocol-based physiology test that has been validated for accuracy against laboratory-grade physiology testing. Professional athletes and WorldTour cycling teams use INSCYD to test and monitor their training progress.
INSCYD testing reveals your V02max, VLamax, anaerobic threshold, training zones, and more! After a detailed analysis of your INSCYD test results, you will know your strengths and weaknesses as an athlete and know how to train for big performance gains this season.

How INSCYD Testing Works
After you schedule your test, our coaches will provide instructions on how to perform an INSCYD test including a guided audio workout option. Once you have completed the test, you will send us your data files. Then we take care of the analysis and get ready to share your results with you.
