|About||The Boise State Human Performance is open to the public for health and performance testing.|
The measurement of body composition is the calculation of the portion of the fat and lean tissue components of the body. It is used to determine body fat percentage and then calculate a recommended body weight. The lab is equipped to do three different kinds of body composition testing: hydrostatic (under water) weighing, Bod Pod and skin fold calipers.
Resting Metabolic Rate: Resting metabolic rate is the energy required by the body to maintain the vital functions of the body in a resting state. This value allows you to calculate total daily energy expenditure, approximate the energy substrates being used, and to estimate caloric intake needs. This is a test conducted to determine the maximal amount of oxygen the body is able to consume per minute of physical activity. This measurement is used to determine cardiovascular fitness level and can somewhat predict aerobic performance. The lab is equipped to do maximal testing on a variety of different ergometers (bicycles, rowing) and on the treadmill.
Lactate/Anaerobic/Ventilatory threshold: This is a test to determine the exercise intensity at which the body’s ability to clear lactate is exceeded by lactate production. This measurement is used to more accurately prescribe optimum training intensities for aerobic events such as cycling and distance running.
Anaerobic power test: The Wingate Anaerobic Power Test is used to assess peak anaerobic power, anaerobic fatigue and total anaerobic capacity. These values can be used to more accurately prescribe optimum training intensities for aerobic events such as cycling and distance running and for anaerobic events, i.e. sprinting. Other anaerobic power tests are also available.
Sub-maximal testing: Sub-maximal exercise tests are conducted to estimate maximal values and workloads. Sub-max testing is not as intense as maximal and does not require as much equipment or physical exertion.
