VO2 Max Test or Bike Fit Previously Scheduled-PAYMENTS ONLY
- Item #: VO29-MISC
- Cannot ship to: Canada
A VO2 Max test involves a graded exercise test on a treadmill or bicycle. The test starts at a very easy level and increases intensity in one minute stages until the subject cannot continue. The subject breathes through a mask and a sample of the expired air is collected and sent to a metabolic analyzer.
The analyzer measures the volume of air expired along with
the concentration of carbon dioxide and oxygen in the expired air.
From this, we determine:
Fat Burning Zone: the intensity at which fat burning is maximized
Aerobic Threshold: optimal intensity for endurance training
Lactate Threshold: the red line, or the highest intensity at which acid does not accumulate, optimal for tempo training
VO2 Max: the subject's aerobic capacity, which gives some insight into potential and provides optimal intensity for interval training.
