The purpose of this study was to observe the effects of different workloads (i.e. volume patterns-3 RM, 6 RM, 9 RM) of power clean on blood lactate production in female weight lifters. A total of six weight lifters with mean age, height, weight and BMI of 20.50 ±2.88 years, 161± 6.55 cm,70±7.45Kg and 26.81±1.78 respectively volunteered to participate in this study. Each subject?s blood lactate was measured at rest and after 3RM, 6RM & 9RM with the help of a digital portable lactate analyzer (Lactate Scout) and the data were analyzed using Mean ±SD, ANOVA and Scheffe. It was found that the maximum mean of relative absolute and percent increase value of blood lactate was 8.71±2.38 mmol and 370.06±109.38 % (3RM) followed by 7.45±2.02 mmol & 349.81±112.09 % (6RM) and 5.33±1.96 mmol & 33.31±81.32% (9RM).The difference in blood lactate at rest and after the execution of different work load pattern was statistical significantly (p < .05). It was concluded that the blood lactate response depends upon the maximum absolute load lifted by the weight lifters as compared to the volume of load lifted. In other words, we can say that in this study it was observed that blood lactate response was largely dependent on percentage of 1RM.
