Colour graphics interpretation of AT and V ˙ O 2 /WR slope. This graphic shows the gradual change from high risk (red) to low risk (green) via an area of caution (yellow). It plots the AT and the V ˙ VO 2 /WR slope. This minimizes the assumption that an AT of 10.9 ml.min−−1 is very different from an AT of 11.1 ml.min−−1 (see text).
