this is where terminology becomes a problem
are we talking lactic threshold, as in the first point at which the rate of lactate clearance can't keep up with the rate of appearance? because to me, and the athletes I coach, that is lactate threshold.
the point where you hit anaerobic threshold, ie 4Mm, ie OBLA, ie the point where you go completely anaerobic - to me that is anaerobic threshold
i believe in north america it's called lactate threshold....
The word mostly use in litature is MLSS (maximum lactate steady state).
In the 80s they thought that it was at 4mmol/l lactate but that is not true.The lactate concentration is different for everybody on their MLSS.
What do you mean by completely anaerobic and anaerobic threshold? Anaerobic threshold is just a wrong word to describe the MLSS. And completely anaerobic do you mean maximum anaerobic? That's just your maximum while sprinting.
