Lactate Threshold Testing and VO2 Max Testing
(One to One testing session with a TriStar Athletes Coach via New Leaf metabolic testing Equipment.)
Lactate is the unique metabolic variable that indicates the capability of the muscles for an athletic performance. The ability of the muscles to reach a peak performance during an athletic event requires that the energy systems providing energy be "fine tuned" or "balanced" properly so the athlete can generate the highest amount of energy per unit of time during a race.
Proper training is what accomplishes this fine tuning or optimal balance and it is lactate testing that lets the coach know if the balance has been obtained or how each energy system must be trained in order to obtain the balance.
Coaching is a profession requiring both art and science. We at TriStar Athletes Coaching understand that the building blocks for an optimal performance are many and must be constructed in a proper sequence and must recognize that each individual is different. Some of these building blocks are correct technique, positive mental attitude and a proper diet. However, the cornerstone for this building is precise physiological training.
That is the main reason an athlete spends so much time in the water, on the bike, on the track or the road, in the weight room or wherever training is best conducted. Ask yourself, do you know if all those miles/hours of training are paying out?
But what is appropriate physiological training? It is not volume or else those who put in the most hours/miles would be the winners. It is not intensity or else those who pushed themselves the hardest would be the winners. It is not someone's favorite workout or else everyone would be copying the magic workout or training pace.
It turns out that each individual has their own way of adapting and any smart training plan must recognize this. This is a fact of life. Each has to find his or her own way to the proper balance of the energy systems and peak conditioning on the day that counts, race day.
So that you may reach your performance objectives. ( No over-training and no surprises come race day. ) Click Here to setup a testing time with one of our metabolic coaching experts and locations
