    Anaerobic threshold for lactic acid is about 4 mmol. So can we increase the AT in order to get fatigue longer and faster to regain the strength?

    Accumulation of Lactic Acid and the Anaerobic Threshold:- It is not uncommon to have athletes tested to maximal levels with 16 mmol or more of lactate accumulated in their bodies at the end of a race. This is not a comfortable feeling, and is only possible with the knowledge that the finish line is in sight! The ability to continue to work at such high levels of lactic acid accumulation is typical of highly trained and motivated athletes who have developed a level of lactic acid tolerance. This was to keep the blood circulating so that venous pooling did not occur. You would continue, therefore, at a low level of aerobic work so as to supply oxygen to keep up the breakdown of lactic acid through the Krebs cycle.
