Max Testa's Lactic Acid Talk at Signature Cycle's Passoni Night

Max Testa is a sports medicine physician whose methodology emphasizes the importance of a fine-tuned human engine to help athletes reach peak performance. In Max’s words, "athletes get distracted trying to lighten the weight of their bike or become more aerodynamic, yet they forget to check their own engine and how their training can affect the running of that engine". His unique sports medicine background and extensive European training in exercise physiology give Max profound insight into and expertise with effective training and implementation methods to reach the acme of performance.

Max Testa has worked for 25 years with professional cycling teams as a team physician. He began in 1986 with the American 7-Eleven Professional Cycling Team and continued with Motorola, MG TechnoGym, Mapei, and currently supports the BMC Professional Cycling Team as Chief Medical Director. He has participated as coach and team physician in over 30 grand tours, including Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, Tour of Spain, and prominent one day races such as World Championships for both American professional and national team cyclists and the Classic northern European, Tour of Flanders and Paris Roubaix.

Max Testa’s wealth of practical knowledge, keen insight, and valuable skill comes from working with elite, international-level cyclists, including Cadel Evans (2011 Tour de France winner and 2009 World champion); Levi Leipheimer(2011 winner of the Tour of Switzerland, Tour of Utah and the USA Pro Cycling Challenge); Andy Hampsten (only American to win the Tour of Italy); Davis Phinney (multiple Tour de France stage winner); and Paolo Bettini (Italian 2004 Olympic gold medalist)

    Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

    Great video, thanks. That is pretty old theory explained (lactic acid tolerate training) by expert, I die watching it cos Italian accent ???
    Indeed we do not know what cause muscle fatigue, lactic acid is probably not, lack of magnesium probably not, under training? He mention hydrogen ions :-*
    I heard form one coach that we should ad more intensity while getting older.
