Lactate performance diagnostics

Lactate performance diagnostics is a stress test to determine endurance performance. It is usually carried out on the treadmill or bicycle ergometer in order to create conditions that are as standardized and reproducible as possible. However, it can also take place as a field test outdoors.
The test procedure provides for a clearly defined, progressively increasing load, which is carried out until the test person is subjectively exhausted. The stress is determined using the Borg scale for subjective perception of stress. At the same time, cardiovascular parameters, heart rate and blood lactate concentration are determined during and after exercise. Based on these cardiovascular parameters, an individual lactate performance curve is created for the test person, in which these are put in relation to the respective load. From this, precise conclusions can be drawn about the endurance performance of the test person, i.e. it is possible to derive specific training recommendations for endurance training from these results.
This opportunity is available to professional and competitive athletes as well as to any ambitious or hobby athlete who would like to raise their endurance training to a more professional and goal-oriented level.
