An athlete himself, Dr. Peter Janssen, MD, is a pioneer in the field of lactate threshold training. Dr. Janssen has focused his research on training for endurance sports, which benefits marathon runners, cyclists, triathletes, swimmers, and rowers.
Research, training, and testing of elite endurance athletes at his sports medicine advisory center has enabled Dr. Janssen to radically change and improve coaching methods for a wide range of sports. He has worked with both the PDM and Panasonic cycling teams. Dr. Janssen resides in Deurne, Holland.
There are just too many contradictions throughout the book.

As I was searching through my college coaches shelves I discovered this little thin book, opened it and discovered a science book rather than book on reading. Read morePublished on January 21, 2003 by David Warren
I didn't read this book for lofty prose. I read it to get a good description of the what the Lactate Threshold really is and how to train to improve it. Read morePublished on September 5, 2002 by Amazon Customer
