Things that You Must Know About Anaerobic Threshold

The anaerobic threshold is also called lactate threshold which is the lactate inflection point. This is actually the exercise intensity in which the concentration of lactate in the blood or the lactic acid would start to increase rapidly. Such is usually expressed as 75 percent of the highest oxygen intake or 85 percent of the highest heart rate.

Anaerobic threshold is the point in which the body begins to have trouble dealing with the pressure of the current exercise. This level is quite important to know because this is an intensity in which you can know the different levels of training from. You would be tested through blood test in which you exercise by increasing intensities until you become exhausted. Every three to five minutes, the blood is being tested to know the acid in the blood. However, so many people don’t have the money to be tested this way.

Many times, you will know the lactate threshold through working out for a few minutes like by biking, swimming or running. You then take five percent from the total time and know the lactate threshold for you to have an idea of the training intensities. If you often exercise at the level of anaerobic threshold, then you will not be able to see much progress in the overall fitness as compared to varying the workouts you have and adding the lower aerobic exercises and by combining such with higher intensity workouts.

You must collect a lot of data first so that you can improve the lactate threshold. You wish to try and raise the threshold so that you can exercise longer at greater intensities. When you wish to improve the overall races in triathlon, then you would like to know more about the anaerobic threshold and find a plant that works with the intensities that you have from the testing. You should check the cycling programs offering a test so that you will know the threshold you have for power as well as the heart rate. You may then utilize the plans in order to help you become a better cyclist.

You wish to retest for the anaerobic threshold each six to eight weeks so that you can know how fit you are becoming. For this reason, you would like to ensure that the test that you use is repeatable. An important thing that you should remember is that when you are going to go into a day which are to test and you actually feel sick, it would be best that you skip the test to a later date. When you would do the tests when tired or sick, then you won’t be able to get the best results.
