Regeneration Metrics Part 2- Lactate and HRV Curves


The lactate phases are produce, reduce, use. Focusing on correct training sequences, we are not going to see the influx of injury. A good indicator of what is good is both a combination of injury rates and improvement in performance. Someone asked me about the Dutch Tables and HRV and suggested that it was the repeat sprint ability methods of Beyern Munich- connecting former Dutch Coaches or current Training Coordinator, Jos Van Dijk. This is not the case, as the Dutch have done some impressive work in track and field and swimming in the 1990s and early 2000s, not to mention Fanny Blankers-Koen. Parasympathetic reaction rate is inversely related to both the shift in the lactate curve and the capacity to handle neural stress. Supramaximal work (improvement of speed) is the only way to change the capacity to handle RSA or one is doing repeat running ability, something far slower and less likely to make an impact.
