In this work we consider the axial-vector form factors of the nucleon in flavor-SU(2) and of the baryon octet in flavor-SU(3) Chiral Perturbation Theory. We include the Δ-isobar and the baryon decuplet as explicit degrees of freedom and focus on their consistent treatment in terms of chiral power counting. We employ the use of on-shell meson and baryon masses in the one-loop contributions to the axial-vector form factors. The convergence properties of such an approach are scrutinized. Our results are compared to the available flavor-SU(2) QCD lattice data.
