Lactate Testing
Lactate Testing is available for clients of Synergy Personal Training. Measuring lactate is important for serious athletes and especially popular for professional-level cyclists. Essentially, the maximal lactate steady state is the state at which an athlete can continue activity without having to slow down for an extended period of time. As long as the athlete maintains this effort level, his or her lactate level will remain constant. Any activity above this level will result in frequently rapid progression to exhaustion. The maximal lactate steady state is the single best indicator of endurance performance known. Generally, the athlete with the higher maximal lactate steady state will be faster in an endurance event. Increases in the maximal lactate steady state are almost always accompanied by improvements in race performance for endurance events. Frequent measuring of the lactate response curve is usually the best indicator of potential race performance for endurance events. It is also the best measure for improvements in training.
