Trying to attach a graph.
Hi, I did lactate test last week and have some doubts about the results. The protocol was following: 10’ warmup, walking on treadmill will incline 3-6% with HR around 120. Then stop, first lactate sample and start of the test from walking 3 km/h on incline 15%. Then every 2′ speed was increased by 0.4 km/h.
We agreed to break the test somewhere above what I felt like anaerobic threshold, not to total exhaustion, and we did so.
I attached a graph of HR and lactate levels. I received interpretation that my AeT is at 154 bpm and AnT is 172 bpm.
I may agree with the latter, although the inflection point looks rather to be at 174 but I have doubts about aerobic threshold: at HR=154 bpm lactate level is 1.75 nmol/l, whereas the value 2 is reached for HR around 161-162. I did not feel anything special around 154, but I felt something around 162-163, I could sustain nose breathing until HR 163-165 and speak full sentences to a lab guy.
I would say my AeT was closer to 162 bom, what do you think?
