@CHIQUETETEKIK: To make sure I understand, do you mean just the audio file? We don’t have video footage of a lot of the podcasts.

Another idea: Could you not extend your rear leg as far back, try to use it only for balance, and have the majority of the impact on your front leg?Scott Semple on February 19, 2021 at 5:53 am · in reply to: Is ADS always when AeT is outside 10% of LT? #51007
@sgw: Rule of thumb
@gabreal001: Definitely continue.
I’m an ex crossfit athlete with a 190 LT and I’ve built my AeT to 160 bpm so far. I’m wondering if I should continue with long Z1 and Z2 or if I should begin Z1 and some Z3 in my efforts to most efficiently reach higher AeT values.
Crossfit has put you here. You need to fix it.
Just be patient. I was where you are, doing a lot of Crossfit in the early-2000s. Then I wised up, fixed my aerobic system, and now I’m much faster than I was in my 20s and 30s. (I’m 47.)

Thanks, Garret!Scott Semple on February 19, 2021 at 5:47 am · in reply to: Walking with a 20-pound weighted vest #51005
I wouldn’t run with a vest, but some of our Gym ME routines would be helpful after building a solid base. If you use it too often or too soon, it’ll make you slower.
There are tons of threads about this on this site. Look at the tag list and use the Search field.
A couple of other thoughts:
1. I would use just speed to increase the load, not speed. Increasing incline creates an exponential increase in power. (In the link, you can use calories as a proxy for power.)
2. Wipe your finger prior to squeezing for new blood. That should help remove sweat and reduce contaminated samples.
3. It’s fine to step off the treadmill to take the sample. There’s a lag between lactate in the muscle and appearing in the bloodstream roughly 45-60″ later, depending on intensity.* So if you sample in that window, it should be fine. To be consistent, try to sample at the same interval after stepping off. I usually shoot for 45″ so it’s less rushed; less chance of messing up.
* For maximal (~8″ effort) intensities, lactate won’t peak for several minutes, sometimes more than 10.Scott Semple on February 12, 2021 at 1:42 pm · in reply to: Anaerobic Threshold Test – Muscular Fatigue #50787
With respect to the high heart rates at the beginning:
* Was this measured with a chest strap?
* Did you wet the strap contact patches before putting it on?
If so, then the average HR of the last 20 minutes looks like 177.
Quick correction. I’ll see new posts on new threads and any that I’ve responded to (like this one).
