You know it: decisive situations in a race depend on anaerobic energy supply! So why don’t you measure it? With Optimize Performance & INSCYD, the only scientific validated measurement of VLamax is by default included in every analysis. Whether you prefer a simple (power or GPS only) field test, a lab test with lactate and a metabolic cart, or anything in between.

VLamax has been a secret training tool for some of the most successful coaches of the past decade:

  •  Dr. Olbrecht – advisor to several swimming coaches and triathletes. Athletes advised by Dr. Olbrecht have won numerous Olympic medals in the past four Olympic cycles – the latest being 18 medals at the Rio Olympic Games.

  • Sebastian Weber – used VLamax as a key performance metric during his time as the Head coach of cycling’s most successful team: HTC Highroad/Columbia. He has coached some of the most successful cyclists in the world such as: Alban Lakata, Tony Martin, Ivan Basso, André Greipel, Peter Sagan and many more.

  • Dan Lorang – former Head coach of the German Triathlon Federation, private coach of double Ironman World Champion Jan Frodeno.

  • STAPS: Europe’s most successful testing and coaching business, having Movistar, Katusha-Alpecin and Bora-hansgrohe among others as their customers. 


  1. Identify whether glycolytic power is a strength or a weakness in your athlete.

  2. Project and find out which VLamax is needed to reach the desired goal.

  3. Monitor glycolytic power with Optimize Performance & INSCYD and change prescribed workouts to alter VLamax.

  4. Predict the impact of an altered VLamax on the performance, before planning a training regime.
