A test carried out whilst running on a treadmill in the laboratory during incremental exercise to maximum in accordance with the Mader protocol. During the exercise, a set of measurements are taken in relation to the concentration of lactate in the blood (via subsequent droplets drawn from the earlobe) at increasing speed to establish the anaerobic threshold. The test is used to monitor the athlete’s level of fitness throughout the season and to identify training patterns with reference points based on heart rate and/or speed. It is also possible to obtain approximate estimations of half-marathon and marathon race times.
