The average Joe has his lactate threshold at 50% of VO2Max, and through ideal training intensity this can be shifted to about 85%..
I know the Clinic is not the place to discuss actual bike riding :rolleyes: - but got a link to any programmes designed to raise lactate threshold in the way you describe

I googled it and its no mystery - surprised at how far you can train it!

When you say 'average Joe' what do you mean? A trained club cyclist or just a guy on the street who isnt fit?

A guy in the street.

Even a club cyclist doing non specific training, will probably have stretched their threshold considerably past the 50% mark.
However, genetics have a hand to play in just how responsive someone is, and how far they can take it.

Yeah, that profile on CN today is astounding.. You'd think, after posting so many ads for "EDITOR NEEDED" on the home page, CN would have found one by now.

edit to add my favorite line of this piece of cack: "Froome used every trick in the book to compete in Europe."

"Average Joe" can be anybody, but in my experience an average Joe is relatively untrained. Everything from 43% to 55% is obtainable without regular exercise as per the results averaged last year by my lab.

If you go to a lab close to you doing VO2Max ramp tests, with lactate profiling, and get an SRM-crank, I'll be more than happy to make a training-regimen specifically for you. It isn't rocket-science anymore!:D
I'll need all relevant details as height, weight, sports-history, medical history, test-results etc. but it's not very difficult. Within a period of 2 months, and a renewed test, you'd be able to see real and tangible results.

And here I didn't think CN could disgrace themselves any further.

It reads like something forwarded directly from Froome's family members. WTF kind of article is that? :confused:

His South African girlfriend at the time worked as model in Milan and turned all the heads in Chiari and at races. Rumours has it that Froome ended the relationship so that he could focus 100 per cent on his racing career.
So instead, he had to settle for Michelle? Bet she's thrilled by that assessment.


While some riders boosted their performance by taking EPO, his riding was hampered by the Bilharzia...
Was that bit for comic relief?


Wiggins' victory, his sideburns and his enigmatic character elevated him to star status in cycling
LOL! If that's not trolling...


Wiggins' career nose dived at the Giro d'Italia...
Such a lack of bias. :rolleyes:


If he can stop Alberto Contador et al, at this year's Tour de France, he will be on track to win multiple Tours, possibly become one of the greatest stage racers in the history of the sport and earn the salary to match. He will have completed his evolution from cycling slum dog to Monte Carlo millionaire.
That's real journalism right there, kids.


FFS, what an absurd piece.

South African model? Didn't ummmm, never mind.

Yes it was a totally ridiculous article.

The type of article the team gives cyclingnews and says "here you go, that's your exclusive Chris Froome interview, just print it as is".

Why? It seems to fit the situation very well.
Quite true.

It really come across as nothing more than a massive trolling attempt. It is hysterical. :D

If they're just trying to fan the flames, they've succeeded with this piece.


Then Froome, his PR team, his girlfriend and other defenders on twitter, (and a few select gullibles in this forum) will wonder why all the fuss and disbelief. :rolleyes:

The cycling media is still very much omerta. Everyone is printing that ridiculous badzilla story like its gospel and a perfectly reasonable explanation for why Froome is the new Riis.

I do like "it's the reverse of EPO".

Seriously?

Almost like - he's more than clean! He actually went in reverse to be clean!

Even though you have me on ignore I will admit. I love it.

Sans Dawg and there would be no comedy value at this Tour.

The only question. How genius will the Dawg go?
Chris Froome on @bbc5live says he & Team Sky have already beaten Contador so: "I don't think we have to be worried about him"..

I haven't read the whole thread so I don't know if anything about Froome and TUE's has been mentioned. An interview with him has been played on 5Live tonight and he was asked about whether he had any. He said he didn't but I found it a bit odd that he was questioned specifically about them as if there might be some rumors that he actually does have some.

For the life of me, I can't imagine where such rumors could have originated. :eek:
