Quick thought on recovery

The anaerobic system produces lactic acid for waste. AMPase enzyme mops up that acid when the muscle reaches a 6.6 ph threshold (going more acidic). AMPase attenuates on a log curve (from my best estimation). Lactic acid build up limits available ATP. AMPase activity cleans up that acid to help the muscle continue running. What then promotes AMPase sensitivity and abundance? Is this what “lactic tolerance” workouts facilitate- the release of AMPase? (1)
