So how to get LT1 and endurance training power target from lactate testing results?
LT1 is defined as the first inflection point in the lactate concentration vs power graph
Common definitions with similar outcomes are:
- first rise above baseline
- baseline + 0.3 mmol/L
- first inflection point
folks with a very weak base may not even have a baseline/first inflection point
thanks for the clarification
There are at least 25 different definitions of (criteria for determining) lactate threshold.
Table 1 lists the various criteria used to identify ‘LT1’.
