Bike lactate testing

It's not just what you do, but how you do it.

 

By measuring blood lactate levels, we can determine your optimum training and racing zones and ensure that you always make the most of your bike training time.

 

The test makes use of the latest technology - your bike is attached to the industry leading Tacx T2800 Neo Smart Trainer (accurate to + or - 1%).  Using a minimally invasive lancet, blood samples are taken from the ear lobe or index finger for analysis using a Lactate Pro 2 device.

During the continuous incremental step test, we measure your blood lactate (BLa), power (Watts), heart rate (bpm), and cadence (rpm).

 

After the test, the data is analysed to provide you with personalised guidance to better inform your training. The detailed report includes:

  • lactate threshold (LT),
  • maximal level steady state (MLSS),
  • onset of blood lactate accummulation (OBLA),
  • appropriate training zones using both HR (bpm) and power (W),
  • additional insight to support your bike training.

Cost

£99 (2 hours contact time approx, 1 hour data analysis).  Includes set up, testing, detailed report, consumables and waste disposal.
