Six trained male cyclists and six untrained sedentary men were studied to determine whether the plasma lactate threshold (PLT) and ventilation threshold (VT) occur at the same work rate in both fit and unfit populations. The PLT was determined from a marked increase in plasma lactate concentration ([La]) and VT from a nonlinear increase in expired minute ventilation (VE) during incremental leg-cycling tests; work rate was increased 30 W every 2 min until volitional exhaustion. The trained… CONTINUE READING
