    Predicting Maximal Oxygen Consumption (VO2max) Levels in Adolescents Brent A. Shepherd Brigham Young University - Provo Follow this and additional works at: Part of theStatistics and Probability Commons This Selected Project is brought to you for free and open access by BYU ScholarsArchive. Introduction. Maximal oxygen consumption (VO 2 max) is defined as the ability to transport and consume oxygen during exhausted work and is related to cardiorespiratory fitness American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) has published several metabolic equations for the indirect estimation of VO 2 max while walking, running, and stepping as well as for leg and arm ergometers 2.

    Fitness Testing > Tests > Aerobic Endurance > Maximum Oxygen Consumption > norms. VO 2max Norms. VO 2max is a measure of a person's aerobic fitness (see more on Measuring VO 2max).The table below categorizes VO 2max scores for adult men and women of various ages. Cardiorespiratory fitness, typically determined by maximal oxygen uptake (VO 2max), is a fundamental measurement for the exercise physiologist. VO 2max refers to the highest rate at which oxygen can be taken up and consumed by the body during intense exercise (1). Traditionally, the magnitude ofFile Size: KB.

    A test to determine VO2 max measures the maximum amount of oxygen you can take in during maximum exertion. Measuring oxygen uptake is one way of measuring exercise intensity. VO2 max is also an indicator for endurance for sports such as cross . CHATTERJEE, S. et al. () Validity of Queen's College Step Test for estimation of maximum oxygen uptake in female students.

A suitable testing device that is generally favored for estimating maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) under field conditions or in environments where testing equipment is limited is the step test. Recently a mathematical model was reported to standardize the height of stepping for individuals of various by: Get this from a library.

A height-adjusted step test for predicting maximal oxygen consumption in males. [Joel D Brasher]. Because step height may influence biomechanical efficiency and heart rate, step tests based on subjects' stature may more accurately predict maximal aerobic capacity.

Eighteen women performed the Queens College step test and a modified Queens College step test. The modified step test was performed with the height of the bench set even with the height of the foot at a knee angle Cited by: Abstract A suitable ergometer that is generally favored for estimating maximal oxygen consumption (VO 2 max) under field conditions or in environments where testing equipment is limited is the step test.

Recently a mathematical model was reported to standardize the. Submaximal step tests are often used for estimation of maximum oxygen consumption (VO 2max) in humans.

The validity of the Actiheart step test for VO 2max estimation was not fully studied yet. Therefore, purpose of the study was to estimate VO 2max using the Actiheart step test and to compare the data with measured VO 2max in endurance trained athletes (ATH) and healthy non-athletes Author: Juliane Heydenreich, Yves Schutz, Katarina Melzer, Bengt Kayser.

de Sousa, Rodrigo R. Aniceto, Gabriel R. Neto, Ravi C. de Araújo, Juliana B. According to this literature, as the Queen’s step test with a fixed height is used to predict maximum oxygen consumption in all individuals regardless of height differences, the aim of this study was to explore the impact of active young men height on the estimation of maximum oxygen consumption.

A suitable testing device that is generally favored for estimating maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) under field conditions or in environments where testing equipment is limited is the step test. Based on the validity measures, submaximal step-test protocols are an acceptable means of estimating VO2max in the generally healthy adult population.

Estimation of maximum oxygen uptake by evaluating cooper min run test in female students of West Bengal, India The main purpose of the study is to assess and compare the fitness in terms of maximum aerobic capacity (VO2 max) by cooper 12 min run among the urban female students and rural female students of West by: 2.

As maximal oxygen consumption is one of the most important determinants of being a successful rower, this parameter is one of the most frequently tested.

Compared to other endurance disciplines, maximal oxygen consumption in rowers is one of the highest. Discipline VO2max (L/min) Males VO2max (L/min) Females Rowing X-country skiing maximal rate at which oxygen can be taken up, transported, and used during physical activity.

maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) highest rate of oxygen consumption that a person can attain during exercise; commonly expressed in either the absolute units of L/min or the relative units of ml/kg*min.

A group of 97 subjects performed the YMCA step test and a maximal treadmill test with continuous measurement of oxygen uptake. Correlation and linear regression analyses were used to identify VO2peak predictors obtained from the step test and to develop models for VO2peak estimation.

Results. The YMCA model, including the 1-minute heart beat count, predicted VO2peak with R = Cited by: VO 2 max and age. As we get older, our VO 2 max decreases. A study by Jackson et al. () found the average decrease was ml/kg/min per year for men (%) and ml/kg/min for women (%).

The decline is due to many factors, including a reduction in maximum heart rate and maximum stroke volume. VO 2 max and performance. VO 2 max on its own is a poor predictor of performance but. Francis, K; Brasher, J () A height-adjusted step test for predicting maximal oxygen consumption in males.

) Eight trained female participate in the study to survey the effects of a constant walking intensity (70% of maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max)) on the treadmill at various levels of duration (20, 40, and 60 min) on 3-h recovery of oxygen uptake (VO2).

Subjects reported to the lab for a maximal oxygen consumption test and. The purpose of this study was to develop a step test with a personalized step rate and step height to predict cardiorespiratory fitness in 80 college-aged males and females using the self-reported perceived functional ability scale and data collected during the step test.

Multiple linear regression analysis yielded a model (R =SEE = mLkg−1min−1) that included gender, body. To be included, the study had to (1) have participants deemed to be healthy and aged between 18 and 65 years; (2) assess VO2max by means of a submaximal step test against a graded exercise test.

6. Cycle ergometer and step tests predict VO2max based upon the steady state heart rate of a person exercising at a submaximal level. Thus, the test is dependent upon the direct relationship between heart rate and: a. type of exercise apparatus b. oxygen consumption c. carbon .4 Be able to use experimental methods to predict maximum oxygen uptake Experimental methods: pre-test preparation, eg gaining permission to test, informed consent, health screening; test validity and reliability issues; aerobic run tests, eg multistage fitness test, minute run test, mile run test; aerobic step tests, eg Harvard step test File Size: KB.
