Check out my new article on how to determine your lactate threshold heart rate by feel:

Sports Science Update: Skip The Lactate Threshold Test By Matt Fitzgerald Published May. 31, 2012 Updated 9 hours ago comments Tweet Share A new study reveals that athletes can find their lactate threshold heart rate by feel. Any good training plan for runners includes workouts that are intended to be performed at “lactate threshold” intensity. What is the lactate threshold? It is the intensity of exercise at which lactate—an intermediate product of carbohydrate metabolism in the muscles—begins to accumulate in the muscles because it’s being produced faster than the muscles can use it and the excess “leaks” into the bloodstream. Why does every coach in the universe want runners to train at lactate threshold (LT) intensity once a week or so? Because training at LT is a powerful and efficient way to build fitness. For most runners the lactate threshold corresponds to the fas...
