Vektor says:

some numbers on the axies of those graphs would be really nice. If the graphs are based on data it would take exactely zero effort and increase their informative value from 0 to 1. Just saying.

THis all sounds like total BS….; people are using short term/medium term glucose supplies when exercising… The entire thing sounds staged to support low intensity 'fat burning' myths of old.

lanolanolano says:

Great video, thanks a lot!

Voluntaryist Japan says:

Very helpful! Thank you guys!

HosTek says:

You are talking REALLY fast, guys! But I got the message;) Thanks!

Tony Hunthausen says:

Does the percentage of max at which you optimally burn fat, 70% and 75% here, correspond closely with percentage of max heart rate?

Martin Engelbrecht says:

MAF rate, actual HR at Fatmax needs to be given, tests and data needs to be provided on an unfit, fit and already done on ultra fit person.

Ivan Mateev says:

In the video it is said the guy had RER at 0.7 and he was running at 12-14 km/h. How come the mill shows 500 calories burned at 30 minutes? That's almost 17 calories/min. If fat max is 0.82g/min, that is 7 calories per minute. So 10 cals/min should come from carbs. But wait, isn't it 100 fat at 0.7 rer? It's confusing me 🙁 plotting the RER along with the fat rate on graph would made so much more sense

F O says:

its easy, run in a pace where you stil have oxygen (aerobics). If you are out of breath its more carb burning

Nikki says:

So interesting! I wish they had one of these performance labs near me
