Here I am working with someone that has extremely high lactate levels.
No, these levels are not from a killer workout but a conference call.
It is extremely difficult to reach such levels of lactate in a workout (which shows anaerobic threshold is bullshit).
We, especially our institutions, have misunderstandings in the areas of fitness and mental health.
I’m not saying I have all of the answers but we must be willing to ask better questions.
To put this reading in context, the meter only goes to 24.
A really good crossfitter or fitness enthusiast might get to 16.
If this reading were shown to a doctor they would say this person needs to go to the emergency room for severe brain or liver dysfunction.
They are just having a bad day, at least, that is how their system is interpreting it.
This interpretation has many physiological and psychological downstream effects.
