How to do your performance assessment from home

DIY performance assessment from homeA professional performance assessment is mandatory to optimize your training and to determine your current personal performance. During performance asessments in the laboratory, your training areas are determined, among other things, which are valuable for continuously and efficiently increasing your training performance. Basically, you can distinguish between two types of performance assessments:
- On site, e.g. in a diagnostic laboratory.
- At home, using a test protocol.
The results are almost identical. With on-site diagnostics, you usually have the problem that there is no suitable institute or laboratory near you and you have to travel 100 km+. This is very time-consuming and, depending on the frequency, not exactly good for the environment. The performance assessment costs are for most athletes the decisive criterion, which keeps them from several diagnostics per year.
On the other hand, there are DIY diagnostics or so-called eDiagnostics, which can be conveniently integrated into training from home - without long journeys and expensive evaluation costs. Put on your running shoes or get on your bike and head out to your favorite track. All you need is a sports watch and a bike computer.
