Power Performance decoder

professional physiological performance analysis

Experience your metabolic profile and train exactly what you need

Stop Guessing - start performing

Testing yourself from anywhere you are with results from a professional lab - this opens up a whole new world in the field of performance diagnostics. You will know your metabolic profile and all you need is a powermeter or a smart trainer. You get all the information from a professional INSCYD lactate analysis, just without the need of drawing lactate samples.


PPD is cheaper, faster, accurate with no laboratory needed!


Your training will get more efficient no matter if you are a recreational or a pro cyclist!

What you will get out of the test:

  • your anaerobic threshold (with an only ±2,2% deviation, which is hardly achieved by any laboratory test)
  • your FatMax training range
  • your max. lactate production rate VLamax (glycolytic power)
  • your VO2max (with a deviation of only ±2,5%)
  • your training zones derived from each master parameter (not from a single metric)
  • your optimum interval to rest ratios
  • your optimum way of fueling during training and competition 
  • your optimum of pacing during competition


  • The POWER PERFORMANCE DECODER also cross validated VO2max - VLamax - Anaerobic Threshold, which makes the results even more robust.
  • INSCYD also takes differences between females and males into account.

The test has been validated by thousands of tests with Pro Tour Teams, Peer Reviews and helped cyclists winning podiums and medals around the world.

And the best: do it at home! This is the first test to to tell you how your performance is being composed, and how your training and competition strategies should be without leaving your environment. 


The only thing you need to do is download the protocol for free, conduct the test, upload your files, done. Let me do the rest and explain the results to you. You decide whether you do the test indoor or outdoor on your race/training bike.

MK-Training and INSCYD bring professional performance analysis to your home

If you'd like to know your metabolic profile:

1. Download the protocol

2. Feel free to contact me to go through the procedure (recommended but not a must do)

3. Do the test

4. Save the data

5. Click here to make an appointment and to send me your files:

If you prefer a written only analysis instead of an online face to face chat, that's certainly no problem. Just let me know.


Since testing time and materials are reduced to a minimum you can get the test results for unbeatable 179EUR. In relation to any comparable test that's the real deal! You also save time by doing it at home not having to drive to a lab with all your equipment. Just do the test instead of a hard training. With this single investment of 179EUR you'll get all the data mentioned above and if you want a 4-week-training program (not individualized but a good structure to start from and split into different categories).


Included are the costs of analysing the data by the INSCYD algorithm, the PDF with all your results, my analysis, and the online-meeting OR a full written explanation where I explain the results and how you can integrate them into your training.

Inklusive Trainingsplan

Here are the free training plans. Since they target on different physiological systems it makes sense to know which system you want to target. This is what the PPD can tell you. They are free to everyone, so the training zones are defined by rate of perceived exertion. If you have done a PPD you just replace that by the training zones you get (which zones you should use is defined in the plans).

  1. „Wir haben eine sechsmonatige Beta-Phase hinter uns. Daran teilgenommen haben zwei Profi-Radteams, sportwissenschaftliche Institute und einzelne erfahrene Trainer. Alle haben den direkten Vergleich zu Laktattest und Labortest. Wenn diese Testphase nicht positiv und zufriedenstellend verlaufen wäre, würden wir den PPD nicht live stellen. Gerade im Elite-Bereich und gerade mit Rad-Tests haben wir da einen Ruf zu verlieren”, sagt Weber. (Interview Tri-Mag.de)

  1. "Derived and based only on fundamental, peer reviewed basic science, INSCYD’s Power-Performance Decoder is used by the highest ranked cyclists and triathletes around the world. Over the last few months, PPD has been beta tested by pro teams CCC Team, JUMBO-VISMA, Alpecin-Fenix, SEG Racing as well as by many WorldTour coaches and coaching businesses. Testing and benchmarking has been done in direct comparison to lactate- and lab testing, ensuring top-level accuracy is guaranteed, AND validated."
