Do you have an email address for the tech Jared Berg who did this test? I’d like to contact him then get back to you. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I just completed my physiological test at CU Boulder yesterday. The staff was very helpful but I’m still very new to all this data and how to interpret it. I was hoping you all here, along with Steve and Scott, might be able to assist.
First off, I am out of shape and returning to training after a couple injuries. So I’m sure the results show that I’m in terrible shape! That being said the guy that administered the test said that my fat/cho results were rather weird. He made it sound like my body doesn’t want to use carbs (which I thought was good) when in his opinion it should.
My hope is that you all will be able to help me interpret the results and figure out how to apply to training.
A couple questions:
1. Am I slightly more fat adapted than some new athletes? Why are these results weird? Is my fat/cho usage bad? Do I need to change my diet?
2. He did an ultrasound on my quads and hamstrings and said I have almost no carb stores in them and my fuel is sub par. What does this mean and how do I fix it?
3. For my zones, would they be as follows:
Recovery/zone 1: less than 150
Zone 2: 150-160
Zone 3: 160-182
Zone 4: 182-192
Zone 5: 192-205
4. He said my lactate started out very high and should be sub 2 mila moles. How do I correct this?
Thanks so much for all your help!
