There are two exercise test procedures primarily applied to determine endurance capacity, to verify training adaptations and predict race performance. This study aims to evaluate the agreement of these applied concepts in handcycling. Methods:In a repeated measures cross-over design, 11 highly trained male spinal cord injured (Th12 to L1) handcyclists (age; 40±9 yrs, height; 183±8 cm, body mass; 73.2±8.5 kg) performed a graded exercise test (GXT) and a lactate minimum test (LMT) to determine lactate threshold at 4 mmol·L-1 (LT4mmol·L-1) and lactate minimum (LM), respectively. The agreement of both lactate thresholds concepts for constant load performance prediction (change of ≤1 mmol·L-1 during the last 20 min) was evaluated within constant load tests (CLT; 30 min) at a power output (PO) corresponding to LT4mmol·L-1 and LM . Oxygen uptake (VO2), respiratory exchange ratio (RER), heart rate (HR) and blood lactate (La) were measured during all tests.Results:PO at the corresponding thresholds (LT4mmol·L-1: 149±34 W vs. LM: 137±18 W) revealed no significant difference (p=0.06). During the CLT at LT4mmol·L-1 and LM, VO2 and RPE were not significantly different. However, LA, RER and HR were significantly higher (p≤0.02) during CLT at LT4mmol·L-1.
