What Is Lactate Threshold Testing?

Price: $150

Your lactate profile is a powerful and reliable predictor of performance in aerobic exercise. The body produces a performance-limiting substance called lactate during exercise. The lactate profile test determines the level of exercise intensity at which the body begins to produce this substance at a greater rate than it can be removed.

What Do the Results Mean?

Knowing your lactate profile will allow you to plan your training, raise your lactate threshold and increase your work intensity.

How Is a Lactate Threshold Test Done?

Your lactate threshold can be estimated during the VO2 max test or during the lactate profile test, where blood samples are taken to determine actual blood lactate concentration.

Schedule a Lactate Threshold Test

A lactate profile for cycling, running or swimming is $150 a la carte. The IRONMAN Sports Medicine Institute also offers sport-specific packages to meet the needs of all athletes.
