The first chapter of this lactate parable will center around a key physiological process called glycolysis.
They suggest that the tempo of the game may be crucial to whether anaerobic glycolysis is significant or not.
After a few minutes aerobic glycolysis becomes dominant to prevent the build up of toxic levels of lactate in the blood.
Very early into these workouts, an ever-increasing amount of energy needs to be fuelled without oxygen, resulting in oxygen-independent glycolysis.
This leaves the cycle, and two of these triose phosphate molecules combine to form one glucose molecule using the glycolysis enzymes in reverse.
