What’s it mean to improve the lactate threshold? What about lactate buffering capacity? In this episode, John and Steve take you down the rabbit hole of workouts designed to improve every part of the lactate curve. You’ll learn why traditional tempo runs push the lactate curve up, but you can also pull the curve. You’ll hear how even short fast workouts can influence lactate dynamics.
We’ll cover the science, but more importantly, you’ll walk away with several new workout styles to make sure you athlete keeps adapting.
