JachinBoazTri prides itself on crafting custom designed workouts based on testing metrics to establish performance zones for each workout. Critical Swim Speed (CSS) is used to establish a projected race speed per 100 yards swam. Testing for cycling results in the establishment of a metric called FTP, or functional threshold of power. FTP is used in cycling workouts to establish load/exertion and duration. FTP is then converted to watts/kg. for use in gauging improvement over time. Running metrics are typically based on race distances and workouts utilizing quarter-mile, half-mile and one-mile repeats to establish run zones and race strategies.
