Level 1 fitness test*
The lactate profile is a submaximal step-test, which involves exercising for 3-4 minute stages at progressive speeds/power outputs. Heart rate, blood lactate and rating of perceived exertion (RPE), are measured at the end of each stage.
We use the blood lactate data to identify thresholds that provide an indication of your endurance capacity. We also use the data to calculate heart rate and intensity (speed/power) training zones. You can use the training zones to guide your training and monitor progress.
Data from this profile include: Lactate threshold, Lactate turnpoint, Heart rate training zones
