Contextualizing Meaning of Low AeT

    Hi. My background is a casual climber and former crossfitter who has seen the light after reading TFTNA / UA. I’m beginning the 16 week mountaineering program to train for an Alaska climbing course this May. After several attempts at the treadmill AeT test I finally nailed the incline / pace and got an AeT result of 115. At an incline of 15 degrees this required a walking pace of 1.5mph. Does this mean I have severe ADS? Essentially I’m struggling to contextualize this number as it relates to the various parameters of aerobic deficiency, incline, and pace so a sense of how I should think about 115 (when I see folks on these forums at what seem to be astronomical AeTs) would be helpful. Thanks.

    Nik,

    Have you done the AnT test?

    Can you please make your AeT test public and share the training peaks link?

    I would not compare your thresholds with others.
