    Vo2 Max Lab Report

    • 900 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Introduction: Maximal oxygen uptake, or VO2 max represents the maximum amount of oxygen consumption attainable during all out aerobic exercise, most commonly running on a treadmill. The point at which oxygen consumption plateaus is the individual’s maximal oxygen uptake. If the individual does not plateau, that point is referred to as VO2 peak. VO2 max is measured in milliliters per kilogram of body weight per minute, and there are two ways to measure it, either direct or indirect. The direct method requires the subject to exercise to the extremes of their capability, and indirect methods use sub maximal exercise. For this lab, we used the direct method. It can be tough though, because it requires the subject to exercise until exhaustion, requiring enough motivation. Some main factors affecting VO2 max are age, gender, and altitude. VO2 max is typically highest by age 20, and…

    walking up and down stairs with ease or playing a game of tag with friends at the park, but at elite levels the higher the cardiorespiratory endurance of an athlete can make the difference between a good athlete and a professional athlete (Heyward and Gibson, 2014) Vo2 Max testing is a way in which to accurately record an athlete’s peak aerobic performance levels, the Vo2 Max test analyses the maximal capacity of aerobic work the body can output over a period of time. There are two types of Vo2…

    A measurement that measures the maximum volume that can be obtained by an individual is called VO2 max. VO2 physiology is two different categories 1) Utilization and 2) Delivery. Utilization is being able to extract and use oxygen. Delivery is about the transportation of oxygen cells either through the CVD or pulmonary system. VO2 is important for exercise and transporting oxygen to the muscles. VO2 max is important to health because it gives information on the function cardiac output of the…

    Hypothesis: Even though the 1.5 mile run test will not produce the highest average VO2 max, the results of the 1.5 mile run test will produce the most accurate VO2 max results as the test puts the most physiological demand on the body compared to the Queens College/McArdle Step Test and the Rockport One Mile Walk Test. Discussion: The Queens College/McArdle Step Test, the Rockport One Mile Walk Test, and the 1.5 Mile Run Test are three different field tests that were performed in this lab that…

    Aerobic capacity of endurance athletes has been a consistent topic throughout research. Different sports require a certain amount of endurance to be successful on the field or court. Much of this research has been done on soccer players. These athletes consistently show a high maximal oxygen capacity, also known as VO2 max. Due to their higher aerobic fitness level they are able to perform closer to their maximum heart rate value as well. Throughout a match the players consistently shift from…

    stage of the protocol and all equipment should be started simultaneously. All metabolic data are measured, displayed, and automatically recorded for the entire testing session. Using the Bruce protocol, the treadmill speed and grade should be increased appropriately every three minutes for the entirety of the test. The participant should be continuously monitored for any activity or behaviors that would signal the technician to terminate the test at a point before max effort. The participant and…

    include carb loading), clothing, and running shoes were researched in the task analysis. The aerobic system dominates for 90% of the race and this is reflected in the training which trained both the anaerobic glycolytic and the phosphate-creatine systems at approximately 2.5% each. Running shoes will be replaced every other month to reduce the risk of injury. A Fit-Bit Charge 2 will be utilized in training and competition to monitor heart rate, calories burned, distances ran, and sleep.…

    After the set was completed, the Rating of Perceived Exertion was determined for each subject following the 0 to 10 point scale of exercise resistance during the whole training session. To estimate maximal strength in each exercise, the participant performed about 8 to 12 repetitions. The equation used to estimate 1RM was that by Brzycki. Every subject was evaluated every 15 training sessions in order to monitor the intensity of the exercises and to adjust the training load. The subjects…
