Lactate threshold measurements are part of the routine testing done for training and diagnostic purposes. The reproducibility of the 4 mmol.l-1 threshold has, however, rarely been investigated. Twenty-seven untrained and 10 endurance-trained females each performed two incremental spiroergometric treadmill tests at 5% grade, with three-minute speed increase intervals. Running speed at the threshold increased from 1.9 to 2.1 m.sec-1 in the untrained and remained constant at 3.4 m.sec-1 in the… CONTINUE READING
