Some moves to combat hyperlactemia and exercise mental strength
Lactate: what it is and why it is produced
We often experience high levels of lactate, or hyperlactatemia, in our muscles during strenuous exercise. When workout intensity quickly increases, our body can’t keep up with the oxygen demand needed to metabolize glucose into energy. In order to keep feeding energy to our muscles, our body switches to anaerobic respiration, which doesn’t require oxygen to produce energy.
How to deal with hyperlatemia
In most cases, exercise-induced hyperlactatemia is not harmful but makes it harder to complete exercises and improve performance. However, a few techniques can allow you to combat and delay the threshold: regularly exercising, staying hydrated, and healthy nutrition.
The power of your mind
Now that you understand how to delay muscle fatigue caused by acidity, the real challenge becomes our mindset. Our brain can misread how much energy we have left during a workout and demand less of our muscles, causing us to quit early.
