Hi everyone, thank you for reading my first post. I recently did a AeT/AT/VO2 max test and I am hoping I could get some help analyzing some of the information from the report. I’ve attached the file here.
I am a 39yr old male. All my life, I’ve never done much cardio. I mostly lifted weights. I looked relatively fit (15% bf), but my endurance was crap. In Sept 2020, I started getting into endurance and researching things like AeT, ADS, and Maffetone training. Over the next 4-5 months, I was determined to get my AeT engine up to par. This included about 65hrs of Maf HR running/walking, which equated to about 460km. I would say 95% of my training was below MAF HR (140). Most of my training is done fasted at around noon, my last meal being the previous night. When I first started, my MAF speed @ 140bpm was about 8:45-9:00min/km. It is now about 7:00min/km.
I’ve been on a low carb/carnivore/keto diet for over a year. I also do 18-36hr fasts occasionally and find it very easy. I do not have carb/sugar cravings. I eat “normally” (SAD) for social events, and I’ll have occasional cheats meals, but for the most part I’m quite low carb carnivore. Due to this, I figure I should be fat adapted.
After about 4 months of training, I wanted to do a AeT/AT/VO2 test to see where I was at. I did the test yesterday, and I was quite surprised by my Carb/Fat ratio. According to the test, at a measly HR of 118-128, my carb to fat ratio was 72/28!! At a HR of 129-138, it was 84/16, and at 139-145, it was 87/13. From my understanding, that would mean that my crossover point is at a HR well below 118!? Or that I might not even have a crossover point! How could I be that bad of a fat burner??
Also, the report says that my AeT is 138 and my AT is 151. These numbers seem to be reasonable based on my performance and my understanding of physiology, but it does seem to contradict the carb/fat ratio value.
Also, I noticed my AeT is very close to my AT; does this mean I should spend some more time increasing my AT to make room for my AeT to improve?
I am most concerned about the carb/fat burning values. Does it make sense that I have that bad a case of ADS?? I’m just a beginner trying to improve my overall endurance/health and improve my MAF speed to 6:00min/km. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!
