A first step to event success
Lactate is a well characterised and known indicator of metabolic stress. Measuring an endurance athletes lactate threshold power-to-weight (or pace for running) and heart rate is best practice for establishing physiologically relevant training zones and exercise prescription. Power-to-weight or pace at lactate threshold is an important biometric parameter, predictive of event success and is used by many global pro-teams and elite athletes. Robust lactate threshold testing and profiling not only provides insight into an individuals strengths and weaknesses, but also acts as an effective tool for optimally productive training, without the need for trial and error.
