A Guide to Lactate Threshold Testing

Personalised Performance Training for ALL

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.

This FREE info series PDF highlights the main aspects of Lactate Threshold testing, its’ practical use and important role as part of an effective training programme for all types of cyclists or runners….read more about our Lactate Threshold testing service here.
