I’m following this, as I’m about where you are with ADS, 132/188. Great questions
I have pretty bad ADS with AnT at 190 BPM and aerobic threshold at 135 BPM. I am currently training at 12+ hours per week. How often should I be retesting my aerobic threshold?
I also have a couple of general questions about metabolism. So to use oxygen to produce energy, you need aerobic capacity – does this mean that VO2max is dependant on an individuals aerobic capacity and will improve with higher aerobic capacity? In this way can an individual with potential for a very high VO2max have that masked by awful aerobic capacity?
If training results in increased muscle capillirisation and cardiac hypertrophy this should reduce the heart rate required to provide enough oxygen to the working muscles to satisfy their aerobic capacity. Will this essential cause a drop in aerobic threshold effort and require further base building to redevelop capacity to a level to fully utilise this increased oxygen supply? Finally, is that the main purpose of the base phase of a training cycle? To maximise the aerobic potential based on cardiovascular fitness derived from the previous training cycle?
Thanks for your time. Hope you and your family’s are all doing well!
