There are many reason of the physiological limitation such as cardiovascular, ventilation and muscle oxygenation abilities. A comprehensive scientific testing and training monitoring is one way to find each individual athlete’ specific limitation. With the combination of updated technology, we can understand any physiological, mechanical, and psychological or other sports science area that have to improve for the specific athlete.
