The pattern of arterial lactate concentration ([La-]) increase during incremental exercise was studied using a transformation defined by plotting log([La-]) vs. log(VO2), where VO2 is O2 uptake. A plot of this function exhibits a phase of very slow increase followed by a phase of rapid increase, defining a transition in the underlying relationship between [La-] and VO2. These phases were found to be linear on the log-log plot; linear regression analysis may therefore be used to locate the… CONTINUE READING
