The design of the study was very clever. Knowing that the muscles' ability to produce lactate is limited by the amount of glycogen they store, McMurray had a group of eight experienced triathletes perform incremental exercise tests in two conditions: once with normal muscle glycogen stores and again with glycogen stores depleted by low carbohydrate intake before the test. McMurray found that the relationship between blood lactate concentration and ventilation differed between the two trials, a clear indication that breathing rate and depth are not directly controlled by blood lactate.
So what does cause the ventilatory threshold? According to McMurray, the evidence suggests that it is the activation of fast-twitch muscle fibers.
