Lactate Threshold Testing/Max HR Testing
I want to determine my true Lactate Threshold level and Max HR's for training purposes. Those in the ultracycling world and racing world recommend riding a flat course for 30-60 minutes at maximum effort. This type of test provides a more accurate measurement of your true max heart rate. Can this type of test be effectively accomplished with your bike setup on an indoor trainer? Will I be able to generate a true Max HR in comparison to what I would achieve if I was riding on actual road with wind conditions?
