    Hi,

    I have a hard time trying to identify my AeT. I have tried the free online calculator and I often get negative values… Does that mean I should try a higher value for the mean HR? Here is my latest try: http://tpks.ws/5JKJB6MIOTJ53TI4FEYTRMETSU. The test is the second lap. Note that I had to take a short pee in the second lap, but I tried to increase my HR before starting the activity again to limit the impact. Is there anything that can be understood from that activity?

    Thank you,

    Martin

    Martin,

    Thanks for sharing the Training Peaks link. The heart rate during your warmup looks quite erratic.

    I would recommend redoing the test with a good 15-20 minute warmup, let your heart rate stabilize around 155 before you start the test. For the next one hour, try to keep your heart rate around 155.

    Estimating AeT takes a couple of tries for most athletes, so this is normal.

    Hello All,

    Apologies to jump on this thread – but I’m in a similar boat trying to assess my AeT and did a 150bpm test. I did a similar test but didn’t include my warm-up…

    Training Peaks link below. I got a drift of just under 3.5% so that sounds like my AeT would be around 150-155?

    Toby,

    The test looks good. You can set your AeT at 150 for now and do a test again in another month or so with a target heart rate of 155.

    Related question…
    How does AeT as used here relate to first and second ventilatory threshold?

    I had the Met testing done at UC Davis and I’m trying to correlate those threshold results with UA terminology.

    Ok, so I redid my AeT test (http://tpks.ws/NUPDRIXMDJRMBTI4FEYTRMETSU, the first lap is my warm-up and all the other laps are my run).

    By using the online calculator, I get values between 5.2% and 5.8% depending on which 1-hour time window I use, with an average HR of 157bpm. Should I just assume that my HR is 155bpm or do I need to redo the test?

    Thank you!

    Sorry for the delay in responding to your second test. Based on this test, you can estimate AeT at 155.
