lactate threshold data

  • Determine your body's Lactate Production Threshold

  • Maximal effort test

  • Client receives tailored report within a day

  • Program specific heart rate workouts

  • Pin prick test for real-time reading

what is lactate threshold Testing?

We offer a pin prick test to directly read lactate levels during a maximal effort running test.

Lactate threshold is defined as the intensity of exercise at which lactate begins to accumulate in the blood at a faster rate than it can be removed. This is problematic because as a result, unbuffered acid is added to the blood and hinders performance
You can tailor training programs to increase your lactate threshold and aerobic capacity by training just below this threshold!
