|Contact a sports lab if you're looking for an exact figure. It's never been quite that important to me, but I'll likely do it sometime. I use estimates for training purposes. Anyhow, you can change it with training as well. One of my particular training targets is just that, push that AT up and up.|

|Short of going to a lab, as Cioccman suggests, doing a time trial is probably the best way. Generally, |
average HR attained during a 40k TT is right on to your lactate threshold heart rate; av HR on a
10 mi. TT would be about 103 - 105% LTHR. The same would apply to average power output if
you're measuring power via a power tap hub. For more exact tables for different time trial
distances, consult Joe Friel's Cyclist's Training Bible or Cycling Past Fifty.
