Individualization training program in sport recreation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The psychological and metabolic effect of amateurish sports depends on the adequacy of the training program for the individual in question. In high performance sports the methods of measurement for individualizing the intensity of training can be categorized as invasive (determination of lactate in plasma) and non-invasive (maximum heart beat maximum velocity). I will present a summary of many years of the use of heart beat and the lactate response during scale test to individualize the intensity of training with the aim of reducing injuries and/or abandonment of the amateurish sport. The principal parameter is the anaerobic threshold (lactate threshold).Various practical aspects of the application of this method will be discussed.
