Which athlete accumulates the most blood lactate during there event? Wrestlers, Track and Field 400/400ih runners, or 100/200 meter swimmers?
What I have found reguarding Wrestling has been…
"A college or freestyle match lasts 6 and 8 minutes including overtime and can elevate blood lactate concentrations in excess of 15 mmol/L and sometimes reach nearly 20 mmol/L. In comparison maximal treadmill tests may raise blod lactate levels to around 10 mmol/L. Lactate will directly affect the muscles contractile mechanisms by interfering with the actin-myosin cross-bridge interactions. (Kramer et al 2004).
I have consistently witnessed female sprint swimmers producing systemic lactate levels of 15-18 mmol/L in training and competition,after single or repeated all out efforts ranging from 25 to 90 seconds.
