I recently did an incremental VO2Max test on a treadmill with gas exchange measurements only (no lactate).
My VT1 is at a low % of VO2Max, while VT2 is quite good. I’m wondering what your thought on my physio values are, and what would you recommend in term of training to increase VT1.
VT1: 56% VO2 max, 60% MAS, 125bpm
VT2: 81% VO2 max, 75% 156bpm
HRmax (test): 173
VO2 max: 72,2ml/kg/min
HR Rest: 33bpm
HR max (true, peak at then of races like 10km or 30TT): 178bpm
Before and during 10 months prior to the test, I had a polarized approach with 6/7 LIT sessions around 115bpm (so 10bpm below VT1), in addition to 1 to 2 HIT sessions (e.g. 4x8’, 6x6’, 3x10’, etc.) around VT2, never between.
Thanks for your help,
