Why Lactate Testing?

  • Lactate is a fuel source in the body.
  • Efficient use of lactate correlates with better performance.
  • Lactate testing monitors lactate levels in the blood.
  • Higher lactate levels are associated with less sustainable efforts.
  • Trend lines from samples illustrate changes in effort during the test.
  • Analysis of these trends helps identify training zones.
