Managing resting metabolic rate is a critical aspect of losing weight and keeping if off. The more calories you burn in a day, the easier it is to lose weight and maintain the loss. Unfortunately, dieting tends to reduce resting metabolic rate. Optimal nutrition and exercise habits increase it. Measuring your resting metabolic rate provides vital information that helps with management of exercise and nutrition strategies for weight loss.
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.
