Trying to determine AeT from LT Test

    I was told my lactate threshold is at 2.8 mmol based on this LT test, but I couldn’t get an answer on what my AeT is.
    I know everyone is different so there isn’t a set value to look for in terms of exact lactate level, but I think my zone 2 would go over 150 but wanted another opinion.

    Im not the expert but i thought that the aerobic threshold is where, when plotting the lactate levels on a graph the curve will take a steep increase or acceleration OR when you hit 2 mmol. I dont fully understand the last part because some people may have a high resting lactate levels. I think the books show this quite will with various graphs.

    So where the lactate graph takes a change in slope (ie accelerates upward) at the corresponding heart rate will be the aerobic threshold.

    Hope this helps.

    Your AeT is when your BL is 2, right around 170 BPM for you. LT is when curve takes a steep increase. Its not an either/or as I read it.
