Still using 3 x 12 reps and 90 seconds rest?
Strenght Training + Muscle Oxygen
How long do you rest in between sets and reps?
Knowing when to start your next set is a game changer. But how do you know if your body is ready for the next set?
- If you want to train endurance, you can start your next set after period 1 (endurance).
- If you want to grow your muscles, start after period 2 (hypertrophy).
- If you want to increase your strength, wait until rest period 3 (maximal strength) is over.
How do you know what muscle to train?
Find limiting factors
Combine up to 4 sensors at once to measure muscle imbalances or limiting factors. Determine whether it is your left leg, your right leg, your upper leg, or your calf. Know which part of your body prevents you from going faster, higher or heavier.
You can repeat the same exercise to detect which muscle needs some extra work. Quantify if your right leg desaturates as fast as your left after an injury. Or check if you are targeting the right muscles with the correct technique during a difficult exercise.
Use the Train.Red app
Keep an eye on what's happening inside your muscles. Our app shows live data from your session. From your SmO2 levels to Muscle States and our newest addition 'Supply & Demand'. Save your training and take a look any time and compare training to improve your performance.
Determine your substainable pace
Endurance Sports + Muscle Oxygen
Pacing is essential in endurance and interval sports, but how do you determine the best pacing strategy?
With Train.Red you can finally see how your muscles respond to your pace. If the line is 'red' and your saturation goes down, you will not be able to hold on to that pace for long. While a flat yellow line indicates a sustainable threshold pace for that muscle.
Most people skip a good warming-up
To get your body ready for your training, a warm-up is essential.
You can increase the amount of blood flowing to your tissue and increase the amount of oxygen by performing a proper warm-up. The images above, show the moment when you reach your maximum available oxygen and are ready to perform at your peak.
SmO2, Muscle States, Supply & Demand - what?
To move, your muscles need energy. The most efficient way requires oxygen.
We measure your muscles. Live data from your training, race, or recovery, to help you improve your performance.
Our sensors look inside your body with infra-red light. Our AI and app convert this data into features to help you become fitter, faster and stronger.
