This may have been due to subject walking from class to lab or from the excitement of being a subject on the test; after the second reading his plasma glucose normalized and started to gradually increase as the work rate increased. The experiment work rate level were based on the fact that the subject express Work Rate (Watts) HR (bpm) VO2 (mL/ min) Lactate (mmol) 0 92 6.8 36 124 1091.2 3.4 62 148 1364 5.0 87 169 1636.8 7.0 112 190 1909.6 8.6 137 205 2182.4 16.9 to be unfitted, and the results showed that the subject reached TL at 70% which proves the subject is fitted compared to the average population but not an elite athlete because most athletes reach LT at 80-85% VO 2, and even thou the subject approximated the desire values for a fitted person, his work rate was based on an unfitted person....
