Lactate Threshold Explained
In this video, I explain what the Lactate Threshold (sometimes called "Anaerobic Threshold") is and how to effectively train to increase it and improve performance.
The Lactate Threshold is the point of exercise where lactic acid accumulates in the muscles faster than it can be flushed away. This results in a build-up of lactic acid and decrements in performance.
In my opinion, the lactate threshold is one of the most important factors in sport performance, especially for sports that rely on the anaerobic energy systems.
