Timothy Haitz KIN 335 Prof. Brohmerm March 11, 2010 Lactate Lab Report Introduction Blood lactate concentration is one of the most often measured parameters during performance testing of athletes (Goodwin, Harris, Hernandez, and Gladden, 2007). This measurement can be done directly in the field with a portable blood lactate analyzer, which is popular to coaches and fitness trainers and have extremely good stability and accuracy. A direct measurement of blood lactate concentration can provide significant information relating to the performance capabilities of an individual. Researchers have discovered that exercise intensity corresponding to a given blood lactate concentration, or the onset of blood lactate accumulation (OBLA), not only is a good predictor of endurance performance, but is also a very trainable Four tests were administered during the lab which assessed blood lactates: steady state endurance, incremental aerobic exercise, static exercise, and upper body local muscular endurance. All four tests were designed to measure blood lactate levels. This information can be used to help determine the endurance fitness of the participants. The purpose of this lab report is to make assessments and calculate the blood lactates of the participating individuals.
