Lactate Threshold Testing*
Lactate Threshold testing is valuable for competitive athletes who are looking to optimize their training regimens. It can help push their training without the risk of overtraining syndrome. The goal of this training is to learn the highest intensity at which an athlete can perform before hitting the wall from high levels of blood lactate.
Why perform Lactate Threshold test?
Lactate threshold testing is best utilized for athletes looking to increase their training intensity without suffering from overtraining. This test is similar to VO2 Max testing, although it consists of longer periods of time between changes in the training. During high-intensity exercise, several blood samples are taken from the finger to assess the blood lactate levels.
