Interval training is an effective method to improve cardiorespiratory and metabolic functioning, and research findings suggest that athletes should perform training at intensities near maximum oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 max ). 1 Accordingly, the time spent near V ˙ O 2 max (ie, ≥90% V ˙ O 2 max

Maximal oxygen consumption ( V ˙ O 2 max ), conceptually invented by Hill and Lupton in 1923, 1 is the accepted descriptive measure of aerobic capacity. In athletes, V ˙ O 2 max is also used to monitor training-induced adaptation, 2 to predict sport performance, 3 or to classify athletic

Although many physiological and anthropometric parameters alone or in combination can be used to predict rowing performance in Olympic rowing (2000 m), the most important physiological determinant of rowing performance is maximal oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 max , in L·min −1 ). 1 – 6 Regular

A high maximal oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 max ) is considered a prerequisite for success in endurance sport. 1 V ˙ O 2 max is typically measured during incremental exercise tests, in which there is a linear increase in work rate and in oxygen consumption ( V ˙ O 2 ) over time and participants

The Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test Level 1 (YYIR1) emerged as a popular option for evaluating performance readiness of players in team-based sports. 4 – 7 The YYIR1 is often used, incorrectly, as a surrogate for estimating maximum oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 max ). However, knowledge of V ˙ O 2 max

Maximal oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 max ), typically expressed in relation to a measure of body size, is the “gold-standard” measure of cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) ( 10 ). A valid measurement of V ˙ O 2 max is important in children and adolescents because a high CRF in youth is associated with a

Maximal oxygen consumption ( V ˙ O 2 max ) plays an integral role in health and wellness. The assessment of V ˙ O 2 max can be used to prescribe exercise intensity, evaluate the progress of an exercise program, and evaluate endurance performance potential ( American College of Sports Medicine

Maximal oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 max ) represents the upper limit of cardiorespiratory capacity during exercise. Because of its association with several performance and even health indicators, it is important that V ˙ O 2 max is properly assessed during testing, and a substantial body of

Measurement of Aerobic Power—Why is it Important? Maximal aerobic power ( V ˙ O 2 max ) is one of the 2 main constituents of aerobic capacity—the other one being aerobic endurance (percentage of V ˙ O 2 max that can be maintained for given distances or durations). Aerobic endurance is difficult

The maximal oxygen consumption ( V ˙ O 2 max ) measured during incremental exercise reflects an individual’s cardiorespiratory fitness and is a key determinant of both endurance performance during prolonged exercise and all-cause mortality. 1 In addition to its effects on health and performance
