average of the 2 or 3 measures. Cardiovascular fitness was measured using the modified Canadian Aerobic Fitness Test. This is a multistage step test where participants are encouraged to continue until they reach 85% of their predicted heart rate max (220 − age) ( 9 ). Predicted maximal aerobic power (VO 2

, & Pfeiffer, 2016 ). However, it remains to be determined whether there is a correlation between accelerometer output and oxygen consumption (VO 2 , ml·min −1 ·kg −1 ) during high-speed running. It has been proposed that the plateau phenomenon is caused by the built-in filtering of the accelerometer signals

oxygen consumption (VO 2 max; Kramer et al., 1999 ). There are other studies that support the “selective improvement” hypothesis; however, they appear to selectively measure executive functioning subdomains or report composite (summary) scores of executive function. For example, a cross-sectional study

activity in adolescents relates to the capacity to modulate their pain perception. To fill this gap, most investigations have reported analgesic responses after running or cycling (of various intensity and duration). Thresholds have been identified for both the intensity (50% VO 2 max) and duration (10 min

The objective of this study was to verify the effect of the exercise mode on slow component of VO2 (VO2SC) in children aged 11–12 years during severe-intensity exercise. After determination of the lactate threshold (LT) and peak VO2 (VO2peak) in both cycling (CE) and running exercise (TR), fourteen active boys completed a series of “square-wave” transitions of 6-min duration at 75%∆ [75%∆ = LT + 0.75 × (VO2peak—LT)] to determine the VO2 kinetics. The VO2SC was significantly higher in CE (180.5 ± 155.8 ml • min−1) than in TR (113.0 ± 84.2 ml · min−1). We can conclude that, although a VO2SC does indeed develop during TR in children, its magnitude is considerably lower than in CE during severe-intensity exercise.

It is more feasible to assess functional capacity with an exercise test than to measure peak-exercise VO2.


To assess whether maximal workload reliably predicts peak VO2.


Thirty-six patients after aortic-valve replacement during routine follow-up.


Incremental symptom-limited cycle exercise test in the upright position with increments of 20 W/min.


Out-clinic patients, university hospital.

Main Outcome Measures:

Maximal workload, ventilatory threshold, and peak VO2.


Maximal workload was 151 ± 39 W, and peak VO2, 1649 ± 486 ml/min. The correlation coefficient between maximal workload and peak VO2 was r = .92 (P < .0001). The regression equation for the estimation of peak VO2 was y = 11.7 (maximal workload in watts) – 110.7. Peak VO2 calculated with this equation was 1657 ± 451 ml/min.


Maximal workload during ergometry in the upright position reliably predicted peak VO2.
