143: Lactate Training: The "Acid Bath" You Need to Know About

Time Block C - Friday, 11:00am-12:50pm
Presented by: Douglas Brooks, MS
Session Format: Lecture

There are many questions (and controversy) surrounding lactate threshold training and how it is used. Many believe that all cardiovascular training revolves around lactate threshold and everyone should use it as a personal reference point for ultimate conditioning. Is this good or bad? Who is it for? How do you measure it? What is the difference between anaerobic, lactate and ventilatory threshold? This session will delve into the science of lactate threshold and answer these and other questions as they relate to practical application.
