RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?
I am not Renato but i will try to answer. What your talking about is different trainiing. It is closer to Antonio's intermitten training. The hill sprints are done at MAX INTENSITY. The hills have nothing to do with heart rate except the elasticity of the heart at max intensity makes it more elastic. When you fire your system at 100% it also keeps the brain nervous system connection. It teaches the brain and body to work better.You are strengthening the body specific to the activity that you do. Closer to weights depending on the resistance. Of course there is no absolute but the hill sprints are the alatic system done in a safe way. You are looking to recruit the max. number of muscle fibers so you have the capacity to work all your fibers at max. intensity. The only way to strengthen and recruit the max. fibers is at MAX intensity. It makes the stress on fibers at lesser intensities easier. The thing to remember is you need it all this is just one componet and you hopefully will train the other systems as well. That is why Renato uses so many different intensities with relation to race pace. I hope that helps.
