Here a short respond to a very open mail.
No you don't need 1000 of dollars to start your basic idea of an individual testing program.
In your spec. case , where you are a small multi sport group the basic equipment you look for to follow some of our ideas is.
Each member has a basic heart rate watch where you can do an own zone test ( see Polar models )
Than you have to be able to count .
and a Lactate pro for all 5 of you one only and each of you can buy the own strip supply and perhaps an own "poker system" with needles to avoid exchanging needles if you forget to change and everybody has his own set which is very cheap.
so you look at a starter set ( 419 dollar which is about the same in Swiss francs). Yes it is much more in europe. No we don't sell to Switzerland , but as your coach will be here soon for the worldcup races he can order and buy in Canada and take it over. 5 people so it comes to 85 dollar a test and than just strips after that so app. 10 - 15 dollar a test ifyou do it on your own.
Versus 250 dollar for the lactate step test you do now.
Thanks and it is great to see , we have some readers once in a while from the old country and Yes i remember you guys from Spain ( Giverola ) Have a nice spring and a good season Juerg
