AIM This study validated the laboratory testing used to monitor on water training. The purpose was to test that reference heart rates (HR) determined during an incremental test elicit comparable blood lactate levels ([La](b)) during a 30 min on water rowing. METHODS Blood lactate profile were determined during incremental graded exercise in 14 national and international level oarsmen. The HR corresponding to [La](b) of 2 and 3 mmol x l(-1) were determined (HRLa2 and HRLa3 respectively). The… CONTINUE READING
