Mike, I think that lactate is part of the fatigue formula, but I am eager to see what biochemical pathways and neuropeptide channels cause the loss of power at the end of the race. Is is something we can train besides sprinting, or is a general element that can be worked on by many different submax aspects? This thead rexamines a old concept with a far different light.
CNS fatigue is like what lactate work was in the 70s and early 80’s. Getting closer to better answers.
