Was the GET test done in a lab? If so, was it a PNOE machine?
Interpreting gas exchange and lactate tests
can you please help me interpretating my test results?
I am in week 7 of mike foots BIG VERT plan.
Last week I did a combined GET and Lactate test in the morning fasted.
Treadmill, 1% gradient
Starting 5min with 1,6 m/s, increasing the speed +0,4 m/s every 5min.
Test result (March 2020):
LT1: 160 bpm (2mmol lactate)
VT1: 176 bpm (RER = 0,85)
This result was pretty surprising, because the last test (June 2019) was the other way around:
Test result (June 2019) – same test protocol (but starting with 2m/s – in the afternoon)
LT1: 171 bpm
VT1: 149 bpm
My ANT from your test-protocol is: 181 bpm
Can it be reasonable, that my fat adaption adjusted in 9 month? (Training nearly all the time at <150 bpm)
How would you set the training zones?
Do I have ADS (Do I take LT1 or VT1 for the calculation)?
This is how I would set my Zones, asuming I have ADS and will train in Zone 2:
Zone 4: 182 – Max (~202 bpm)
Zone 3: 161 – 181 bpm
Zone 2: 145 – 160 bpm
Zone 1: 128 – 144 bpm
Thanks a lot!
