How is the Anaerobic Threshold determined?
The determination of the anaerobic threshold is practiced by two different methodical approaches - invasive and non-invasive.

Invasive Anaerobic Threshold determination is based on the lactate measurement. Either the catheter is inserted into one of the brachial arteries or the collection of blood from an ear (auricle) or a finger is applied. The lactate shows an exponential inc

What is the anaerobic threshold?
You can image the Anaerobic Threshold as the safe limit of the exercise without an excessive component of the anaerobic metabolism. Bellow this level you can stress your body safely.
