OBJECTIVE To find the individual intensity for aerobic endurance training, the lactate minimum test (LMT) seems to be a promising method. LMTs described in the literature consist of speed or work rate-based protocols, but for training prescription in daily practice mostly heart rate is used. The aim of the present study was to investigate the reproducibility of a new heart rate-based LMT protocol. DESIGN 20 subjects each underwent four LMTs on a cycle ergometer. The LMT consisted of a first… CONTINUE READING
