Blood lactate testing protocol

This protocol includes how to do your own blood lactate testing on your own, plus a spreadsheet to do your own analysis. You will be able to do the test at your club vs. an expensive lab.

Description

Lactate tests are considered the gold standard in identifying your peak heart rate and power at your aerobic threshold and anaerobic thresholds. This is because it measures and quantifies the lactate in your blood at different intensities. After the test you will have a very close measure of the  power and heart rate at both these thresholds, and therefore be able to set up your heart rate and training zones to guide your training intensity.
