4 mmol/L comes from an old study. 4 mmol/L was labeled as "onset of blood lactate accumulation" (OBLA) because past that point, in that study, the lactate accumulated much more quickly.

For a lot of them, this is an issue.

This is part of the trouble of just saying 5x5. What's the frequency? Load relative to 1RM? If we are debating the merits of 3x5 done 3x/week vs 5x5 (5 working sets) done once or twice a week, I'll...

I wouldn't worry about it if you're not having any problems. The plumb bob technique is just a decent place to start.
