Secrets of Lactate Course
Online Ordering

Below is an outline of a CD-ROM we used to sell. We have replaced it with an online webcourse that costs $20 (deductible later if you buy an analyzer from us) . This tutorial provides essentially the same information as the CD. It is one of the most extensive discussions of lactate in the world.

The tutorial was designed to be read in the order presented but readers can browse individual tutorial chapters and discussions in any order. The discussion section contains extensive articles/demonstrations on different aspects of lactate testing and lactate metabolism. Find out what causes lactate to appear in the blood during exercise and competition and why traditional explanations in the text books and training literature neglect an important factor. This factor directly affects when lactate starts to rise and how much will appear but more importantly, how well an athlete can perform in a specific event. It is called VLamax.

We especially recommend Jan Olbrecht's book, The Science of Winning, because of its sophisticated discussion of lactate testing for the training of athletes. Sebastian Weber's website INSCYD is also extremely relvant as well as Shannon Grady's new book, the Lactate Revolution. Ernie Maglischo's book, Swimming Fastest, written for coaches, has over 150 pages on exercise metabolism and the science behind training.

In the links below, you will find some sample slides from the CD-ROM. This information is repeated in the webcourse. Feel free to look at these slides. (Some might take longer than others to download). If you click the Lactate.com logo at the top of each slide, it will return you to the Lactate.com home page.

The course costs $20 and can be purchased by visiting our online ordering site. Interested individuals can also call Sports Resource Group or send questions to us by email.
