maximum lactate steady state

maximum lactate steady state

The speed or power output level an athlete can maintain without experiencing a steady increase in blood lactate levels, which leads to exhaustion; although accumulating hydrogen ions is more important in causing exercise-related exhaustion, lactate levels are more easily measured and thus a reliable indicator of muscle acidity. In athletes, the lactate value associated with this variable is about 4 mmol/L; it is essentially equivalent to critical speed.

They concluded that CL is a maximum lactate steady state (MLSS), since there is an increase in [[La.sup.-]] that can be sustainable over time.
During racing, these variables include the maximum aerobic speed, the maximum lactate steady state (MLSS), and the economy of motion (24).

(4) have shown that the specificity of the exercise used in the training, as well as the instrument used to perform the incremental test, can influence variables such as the maximum lactate steady state (MLSS) and the maximum oxygen consumption (V[O.sub.2] max).

Carminatti (4) reported that the HRDP, identified by the Dmax-Kara method, during the TCar test is similar to maximum lactate steady state. Besides, in runners, the Velocity Peak (VP), the Peak Heart Rate (HRpeak) and the final lactate are similar between the TCar and the continuous track progressive test (VAMEVAL) (6).
The second transition point is called the HR point of deflection (8), which is used as a non-invasive indication of the second lactate threshold and as an intensity approach to the maximum lactate steady state (3,4,8).
