If one of the aims of training is to get used to the lactic acid, will be usefull to take a lot of milk or yaourt on training? And to combinate this with dynamic breath-holds?
It's maybe something stupid, but I want to know more about this question.
Waiting for you posts,
Milk and yoghurt contains lactic acid but lactic acid in your belly has nothing to do with the buildup of lactic acid in your muscles. Lactic acid buildup in your muscles are the by product of anaerobic exersize. i.e workout without adding oxygen.
One way to raise this level is through intense workouts. Just be careful not to overtrain, allow yourself a day of rest after a really intense workout in order to recuperate.
Good luck with the training.
That's why I say also yaourt (or yoghourt, I don't know). It's assimilated before milk to produce lactic acid.

Anyway, you can understand my question in this way: "Before the training, to eat a lot of yaourt-yoghourt" I don't say to extend your belly, but yes to eat half a liter of Actimel or another liquid lactic product.

In october, I wanted to begin a training based on this point, in order to improve my dynamic.
