Why should I do a carbohydrate test?
In short: If you don't take in carbohydrates during your race you lose a lot of power and time towards the end of the race.

With our carbohydrate tests we can elaborate your individual pacing strategy for race day. You will get the information when you have to take in which amount of carbohydrates.

You will get even better fueling recommendations based on your real values by easily integrating the test into your training to determine your individual carbohydrate requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I know my carbohydrate combustion?

Knowing your carbohydrate combustion is good in order to ensure your fueling during training and on raceday. Every second athlete is using the wrong nutrition and hydration strategy.
Experts tip: You'll also be able to pace your race knowing your carbohydrate combustion.

Is it really free?
The starter version is really free and it allows you to create unlimited test sessions to create your individual sweat profile.

Depending on your needs we offer additional plans ending up in the IRONMAN® plan - within that you can relax and focus on your training itself. We cover the part of your fueling - regardless of your nutrition supplier.

You'll find a free plan in our Plans & Pricing.

What is the sweat pack?

With our sweat diagnostic kit, the Sweat Pack, you can easily analyze your sweat during your workout.

The composition of sweat varies from athlete to athlete. Sweat consists of 99% water and is primarily used for thermoregulation. Sodium is dissolved in it and is the most important electrolyte in the context of substitution.

The sodium content varies between 200mg and 2300mg per liter of sweat.

The basis of the Sweat Pack is a scientifically validated method which was designed for sweat analysis in the field and further developed by us.

How does the sweat diagnostic kit work?

In your sweat kit you can find a flyer with further instructions about wich steps you should pass to get your personal sweat analysis. For more details you can take a look in our 'How to use the sweat kit'.

What is your individual sweat profile?

If there is a major, unbalanced sweat loss, your blood volume decreases. The blood becomes more viscous and the oxygen transport to your muscles is reduced. Already from a sweat loss of more than 2% of your body weight, your body therefore limits its performance.

Depending on the type of sport, indoor or outdoor and under very warm conditions, your sweat flow can be up to 4 liters per hour.

We will take all the parameters into account to get the most individual support as possible. In our App you can figure out your individual sweat profile.

How can I optimize my carbohydrate combustion?

To determine your carbohydrate needs you perform a sprint test to find out your anaerobic capacity as well as a 3 step test to collect information about your VO2max, your threshold power and many more metrics. By sending in your results you will receive a notification in your app with detailed results.

What is the carbohydrate combustion?

The amount of energy you have stored in the form of carbohydrates in muscle & liver glycogen is biologically limited. 

Your carbohydrate combustion is the connection between your recommended carbohydrate intake and your power output, depending on your training level, your current threshold, VO2max and much more.

We can show you how much carbohydrates you'll need aligned to your current power output.

For your raceday, we will create a 100% customized fueling and pacing strategy based on your own and individual data.

You can get more information about the procedure in our Carbohydrate Test section.

 

How can the App help me?

The app supports you in creating your individual sweat profile. Based on that we will create your fueling strategy.

Considering your individual energy demand, your race course and your sodium loss in correlation, we will be able to provide you a 100% individual pacing strategy.

The BESTZEIT app is a new way to sum up your pains in the fourth discipline and break your personal best.

What is the best time for testing?

We recommend to test at the beginning of your training cycle before your main / high intense training phase as you come closer to race day.

The perfect timing for your last test would be 2-3 weeks before your final raceday.

Should I book a plan?

Nutrition out of mind in training & in competition.

With our individual plans, we cover your back in the issue of nutrition regardless of your nutrition supplier.

You'll have no risk with a low monthly payment.
