Default what is anaerobic threshold?

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science...e/pii/S0268949

i'm interested in thos article because it mentions a link between exercise and t-PA which is an enzyme known to disolve blood clots

they mention that light exercise on a treadmill doesn't help but increasing the intensity to ' AT - anaerobic threshhold' will help with t-PA production.

my question: what is AT? Isnt this weight training?

isnt this another doctor using a treadmill for the same effect that can be had from weight training?

I looked up anaerobic threshold and came up with a Web site at Rice University that helped me understand it and another site which describes methods (of varying degrees of confidence) for measuring it.

The tl;dr is that AT is reached through short bursts of high exertion. The Rice site discusses it in the context of running but I could see it applying to weightlifting.

Do those help?

yes. that answers my question...


im my words, anaerobic threshold is NOT weight lifting AND it is NOT aerobic walking on a treadmill.

I could attempt to define it in more precise terms but it appears to me that I should move on to a higher quality question:

Will anaerobic activity like weight lifting create the same or better increase in t-PA than anaerobic threshold training on a treadmill?

I think I can partly answer. the study mentioned an importance of adrenelin amd lactic acid. I know for certain the lactic acid is present from weight lifting, but I not sure about adreneline. does this make sense so far?

It does make sense, NSDad.

When you posed the question, my gut reaction was that weightlifting should increase lactic acid and t-PA more than a treadmill for a given amount of time and at similar levels of effort simply because you're involving more muscle groups in varied lifting than you would on a treadmill. And apparently this Livestrong article confirms that.

Thanks.

I used to work my muscles to the point where the lactic acid wouldn't start to hurt until 24 hours after the workout, and it would take 3-5 days to fully recover. It looks like that might not be the best style of weight training. I'm pretty sure I seen another Livestrong article that recommended keeping the rests short to keep your heart rate up. I have never enjoyed that style of weight lifting because I found it more taxing on my energy levels but boy oh boy can you imagine how powerful of a tool the workouts would be if you ever got into the groove where your heart is pumping and the sweat is rolling off in buckets? I'm excited, I have to get back into it.

i had a doctor explain this to me last week. He could be wrong but I believe him so I guess right or wrong this is becoming my new reality.

He said in the context of treadmill exercises, anearobic threshold is the point where you are breathing heavy or unable to speak normally and aerobic is when you walk at a pace that feeling sustainable all day.

he says that weight training is definite an anearobic exercise but from what he can tell the study would have evaluated weight training if that was the point of interest.

he also pointed out that if i was the transform myself into a marathon runner, he would still want me on blood thinners for life which tells me that any exercise i do should target my health and well being, which is more relevant than to exercise specifically to get off blood thinners.

personally, I don't buy into his 'blood thinners for life'. But certainly for now, he is giving me very good advice

If I think of a PE as a complication to a blood clot in my leg. then if my legs were to become very healthy,I could rethink his advice.

these are my thoughts not his so please do not take it as medical advice for you
