This paper explains the physiological and biochemical basis of the anaerobic threshold (AT), achieved during physical exercise. The lactate concentration is approximately the same at rest in relatively fit adults, in normal sedentary subjects in adult patients with heart disease. But during exercise, the increase of lactate is inversely related to the… CONTINUE READING
