RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?
175m up a 30% grade? What does this accomplish? Why use such a steep grade for such long hills? I have never heard of a sprint coach recommending hills longer than 8-10 seconds, and if there are recommendations for this, they would certainly not be at 30% grade. Even with long recoveries, you would either tie up badly or have the lactate start pooling in your feet, making you feel a bit "flat" by the last few repetitions.
