I know that there are lots of Northern California Cyclists on this forum, so I thought I would pass this along. We are looking for male Cat 1-3 cyclists for a sleep study at the Human Performance Center at UCSF. Subjects will be paid for their time, as well as get free VO2max testing (by yours truly) as well as personalized training zones (HR and power) from those results. Great way to get some free testing in if you're looking for base season training parameters. Feel free to pass on to any other teammates or cyclists you might know who fit the build for this study. Feel free to contact the number/email below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm going to be running the testing for a sleep study on cyclists at UCSF. If you're a Pro/Cat I/Cat II/ or Cat III, between the ages of 18-35, and are interested in the study and making some money as well, let me know. You'll also get some free performance testing (i.e VO2max) as well as personalized training zones from me. Here's some more info on the study:
UCSF Sleep and Cycling Performance Study
Sleep is an essential component for peak sports performance however it is often overlooked and frequently sacrificed amongst athletes. For competitive athletes aiming to be at peak performance, understanding the impact of sleep on cognitive and physical performance is valuable for training purposes and implementing individualized recovery strategies in preparation for competition.
The 5 week study will include Pro/Cat I/Cat II/ and Cat III cyclists and will start during the off season in October. The study will examine the potential recovery benefits of 2 weeks of sleep extension as well as the effects of 3 nights of reduced sleep on cycling performance measures (i.e. VO2 max, sub-max time trial) and cognitive tasks. Athletes will sleep at home throughout the study and will wear a wristwatch sleep monitor to objectively assess sleep quality. Athletes will come to UCSF for 4 performance testing sessions. Athletes will be compensated $100 for participation and will receive individualized sleep consultation following the study.
The upcoming research study will be conducted at the UCSF Human Performance Center with research fellow Cheri Mah and Dr. Anthony Luke, Director of the UCSF HPC. Cheri has 13 years of sleep research experience, currently serves as Nike's sleep expert, and consults with NBA, NFL, and NHL teams on optimizing sleep and recovery.
