The twofold purposes of this investigation were: to
determine the reliability and validity of two noninvasive
methods for determining anaerobic threshold (AT) and; to
examine the effect of an aerobic training program on the AT.
Twelve sedentary, overweight women participated in an 8 wk
walk/jog program 3 d•wk-1 at 70% VO2max with a concurrent
hypocaloric diet. A computerized polynomial regression and
four independent reviewers were used in an attempt to
decrease the subjectivity of noninvasive AT estimation from
data plots. Duplicate plots allowed determination of
intra-reviewer variability for ATFEO2 and ATVE/VO2
estimation. All reviewers fell within the 2-10% variability
range accepted for research and clinical purposes,
