What Is Lactate Testing

Lactate testing offers endurance athletes a crucial look at their endurance performance. It allows athletes to track and optimise training programs using designated heart rate zones to improve the body ability to clear lactate.

Benefits of Lactate Testing

Lactate is a product of energy production; even at rest, there is some lactate in our blood. During physical activity, the increasing energy demand increases accumulative blood lactate level. The lactate threshold is the point where lactate begins to accumulate in the blood faster than it can be removed; this represents the maximum speed you can maintain without quickly tiring out.

Through lactate testing, we can determine the individual lactate threshold, which we can use to establish training zones for optimum training outcome.

Testing Procedure

During this multi-staged test, the subject will be running at increasing intensities with a finger-prick blood sample collected at the end of every stage to measure lactate levels in the blood, along with Heart Rate, Rate of Perceived Exertion, and pace. The test will continue until the subject reaches the Lactate Threshold.

At the end of your test, you will receive the identified optimum heart rate training zones and how you can leverage these data to optimise your training program.

How to Prepare

To get the most out of the test, kindly follow these basic guidelines.

  • Avoid strenuous activity 24hrs before the test
  • No food or drink (except water) 4 hours before your test
  • Avoid caffeine or any stimulants that can affect your heart rate
  • Wear comfortable sports attire
  • Bring your own HR chest strap monitor (Make sure that there‚Äôs the battery)
