Our VCE students learn first hand about fitness testing

METS Performance Consulting, an elite Sports Science organization, came to work with our Unit 3&4 PE students on Monday this week. The fitness testing included a combination of fitness tests specific to the VCAA curriculum, using technical light gates and force plates. Students were tested on their anaerobic capacity with a Wingate cycle test, aerobic power testing with a VO2 Max test, as well as having blood samples taken to measure blood lactate levels in order to determine the students’ lactate inflection point.
