What is it?
'Anaerobic threshold is the intensity of exercise at which the individual begins to increase the proportion of energy derived from anaerobic means, principally the lactic acid system'
Maximum output: - highest power output measure and provides info about strength and maximal sprint speed
Minimum output: - lowest power output achieved and helps calculate fatigue index
Average output: - athletes ability to maintain power over time and the higher the score the better
Fatigue Index:- lower the value the higher the ability for the athlete to maintain anaerobic performance
Anaerobic Fatigue: - systems total capacity to produce ATP via immediate and short term energy systems
Blood lactate can also be taken
anything over 4mmol means no anaerobic system
