Using Lack of Pyruvat(LOP) for intervaltraining.
Designing specific training programs based on LOP and lactate accumulation has proven to be a very successful concept in the past decade. Such regimes can increase buffering capacity, lactate exchange, and lactate combustion.
Interval Programs If you are targeting a specific intensity, based on a particular race or goal you are trying to achieve, choose this intensity from the LOP and lactate accumulation graph. Then decide the time that the interval should last for. Simply multiplying this time by the actual lactate accumulation value will tell you amount of lactate that is going to accumulate during the effort. By then choosing the interval recovery intensity, you can see how quickly the athlete can combust the accumulated lactate.
With this information, you can then create individual interval programs based on the current physical status of your athlete, and the goals you want to achieve in future.
