The Benefits of Training at Lactate Threshold

This is the first part of an educational series on lactate threshold training. I’ve covered it in the past via field test profiles, but realized those missed out on a step-by-step discussion of lactate threshold. This series will define LT, discuss the benefits of training at LT for athletes, and then translate that to how it benefits our typical non-athlete students. I will give you an updated audio profile on how to conduct the most effective type of field test in your indoor cycling classes, for both lactate threshold as well as functional threshold power (FTP). Finally, I’ll conclude with the best ways to actually train to improve LT/FTP. This ICA series will be equivalent to an expensive CED workshop!
