What is TTE mode?
TTE mode is a cognitive time to exhaustion mode designed to push your athletes to maintain high levels of attention.
Once your athlete enters a TTE mode task, they will perform a 3-minute test.
Soma will take the fastest average reaction time from either minute 1,2 or 3
This is the athlete's target reaction time for every response. Soma will also tell the athlete their threshold, which is the target reaction time + 20%.
If an athlete's target reaction time is 400ms, this means every response must be faster than 400ms and if they exceed the 20% threshold (480ms) the task will terminate.
This makes TTE mode a pressure cooker for attention as they have already invested 3 minutes before they even begin the task.
When to use Time to Exhaustion mode
When you want to create a high-pressure cognitive training stimulus.
