The lactate test measures the accumulation of blood lactate at increasing intensities.
During the test, participants will complete around five stages at increasing intensities. Our consultants determine the exact protocol based on your current level of fitness, and small blood samples will be taken from your finger between stages to measure lactate levels in the blood.
We use the data collected during the test (lactate, heart rate, and speed/power) to determine your anaerobic threshold, and establish specific heart rate and pace/power training zones to help you improve your sport-specific performance.
