Lactate Testing - Bike

Bike Session Testing to determine Lactate Thresholds & Power Zones for proper training



75 Minutes, Indoor Trainer Protocol, Coach-Interpreted Results & Training Prescription

A lactate test, also known as a lactic acid blood test, measures the amount of lactate in a blood sample to indicate if a person has lactic acidosis. Lactate is a byproduct of glycolysis, the process of breaking down sugar molecules for energy. It's produced in red blood cells and muscle cells when the body breaks down carbohydrates for energy, which can happen when oxygen levels are low.

Lactate tests are often used by athletes to measure how lactate builds up in their blood as they exercise more intensely. The test involves collecting blood samples from the finger or earlobe using a lancet and a lactate analyzer.

We can perform the test during an indoor bike and/or run session at our Performance Center.
