ENGLISH INSTITUTE OF SPORT FITNESS TESTS
Jam Cycling headed up to Loughborough University to help their triathletes take part in a study testing out the effects that a swim have on the bike leg of a triathlon. The Verve InfoCrank and RevBox have been used to conduct these studies combined with Verve's performance software.
The EIS is a grant funded organisation through UK Sport with Olympic and Paralympic sports engaging with the EIS through their World Class Programme funding from UK Sport and English and professional sports through their Sport England and/or funding bodies.
Since the inception of the EIS in 2002, it has worked with sports leading up to and during Olympic and Paralympic Games, Commonwealth Games and many National, European and World events in sport.
The EIS High Performance Centre at Loughborough supports athletes from a wide range of sports. Services across the east midlands are also provided from Holme Pierrepont Sports Centre in Nottingham.
We have collaborated with The EIS to carry out a series of tests on the Loughborough Triathletes to understand the affects of how different length max efforts on the bike are affected by a swim. These were 3 minute (short max effort) and 12 minute (long max effort).
