Power

Our Power tracking profile is designed for athletes and body builders involved in strength and resistance training. When participating in a power sport such as weight training it is important to maintain certain biomarkers within the body at optimal level. As power sports place a lot of stress upon the body it is also important that muscles are given sufficient time to recover and re-build.

Our Power subscription package includes key markers to track muscle damage, by tracking these markers you can monitor muscle breakdown and recovery. The profile also includes vital hormones such as testosterone which has a role to play in developing lean muscle tissue, as well as other health markers which can be affected by strength training.

Training as a professional triathlete takes a toll on the body. In order to achieve my performance goals in the sport, consistency and quality training is necessary. Thanks to ForthEdge I can routinely check my biomarkers making me more aware of how my body, both on the inside and out, is adapting to my training helping me tailor my plan to my personal, physical needs - a dream for any athlete.

I'm really excited to be an ambassador for Forth and am looking forward to working together to gain a deeper understanding of what is happening to my body as the training load changes throughout the year.  I believe monitoring blood profiles is the best way athletes can accurately monitor fatigue level and ultimately get the most out of their training.
