Lactate Performance Test – $179

The Lactate Test is part of the performance diagnostics program for amateur-, competitive- and high-performance-sports athletes carrying out endurance related exercise. It is the starting point for an effective, healthy and economical training system.
and is primarily designated to analyze the aerobic endurance performance but also secondly to appraise the anaerobic performance as the test is carried out until the full physical capacity of the test person elapses. The physiological test parameters “lactate concentration in the peripheral blood” and “heart rate curve” are monitored and included in the analysis.
Lactate as a waste product of carbohydrate metabolism and our analysis gives you information about your muscular metabolism and so the current state of your performance and training.

Regular testing comparing actual and previous results gives information about the efficiency of the respective last training block. It is common practice to adapt the training intensity of endurance athletes according to the results of the Lactate Test. Therefore, the obtained data is the foundation for an effective training plan and with the test results you will know your training development potential, your individual training zones (HR and Pace for running; HR and Power for cycling) and you can optimize your training.
The Test Protocol can be customized or we will use standard scientific proven protocols.
The tests are done on a treadmill or with your own bike on a high performance ergometer. Our evaluation and consultation takes place after the test with regard to your individual training and competition goals. In addition we will create a sample personalized weekly training plan for you.
