Throughout the 2016 season Cylance Pro Cycling athletes have been conducting product testing for RPM2, along with their traditional power data collection. It was during this product testing that a discrepancy in one of our rider’s results was noticed. The injury hasn’t prevented Alison from becoming a world class professional athlete, so she put it behind her until RPM2 noticed there was a clear difference between her right and left leg symmetry.
This week we are taking a look at Alison’s data from her knee extension exercise. In analyzing her date, RPM2 noticed that Alison’s range of motion improved over the course of the third week of the trial. Though her Average appears to be further apart (most likely due to her 2-hour moderate ride that day), her range of motion increased as seen in the screen shots of the RPM2 app below.
While her overall range of motion has continued to improve, it’s not uncommon for fatigue to draw out differences between left and right legs. You can read more about how fatigue affects symmetry and range of motion on our blog here.
Alison is in the middle of the 30-day testing protocol and will be sharing some of her exercises on her social media. RPM2 will be working with Cylance Pro Cycling to analyze her results on a weekly basis.
