# How To Calculate Relative Vo2max

Table of Contents

## What are the relative units for VO2 max?

API quota exceeded. You can make 500 requests per day.

## How do you calculate relative oxygen consumption?

So, a person who walked 2,700 meters in 30 minutes would have an oxygen consumption of 12.5 ml/kg/min (90 m/min x 0.1 ml/kg/min per m/min + 3.5 ml/kg/min = 12.5 ml/kg/min). (Note: To convert mph to m/min, multiply the mph by 26.8; to convert miles to meters, multiply the number of miles by 1,609.)

## Why is VO2 max relative to body weight?

The researchers do further analysis to show that relative VO2max is actually inversely proportional to fat mass — that is, the more body fat you have, the lower your relative VO2max. In fact, fat mass is a better predictor of relative VO2max than exercise performance (how far/fast you go in the VO2max test)!

## Why is relative VO2 max data useful?

This relative value provides a better description of how much work an individual can actually sustain. Your VO2Max can be considered an oxygen delivery marker. A high maximal capacity to deliver blood (w/oxygen) means there is the potential for more muscles to be active simultaneously during exercise.

## How is VO2 difference calculated?

VO2 = Q X A-VO2 DIFF The Fick equation is used to determine the rate at which oxygen is being used during physical activity. It’s not an equation you are going to use on a daily basis. You will most likely never actually directly measure your stroke volume or oxygen extraction.

## What is relative oxygen consumption?

Relative VO2. • The total volume of oxygen consumed related to body. weight. • Allows comparison of aerobic fitness among individuals. of various body size.

## How do you calculate VO2 in mL/kg min?

Relative VO2 = milliliters per minute per kilogram (a unit of mass) which is rewritten as milliliters per kilogram per minute or mL/kg/min (1,000 mL = 1.0 L). For example, if Peter weighs 220 lbs. (100 kg) and has a VO2max of 4.0 L/min, his relative VO2max would be 40 mL/kg/min (refer to Table 1-1 below).

## How do you calculate VO2 max ACSM?

Moreover, 3 equations were used for the indirect calculation of VO2max: a) VO2max= (0.2 · Speed) + (0.9 · Speed · Grade) + 3.5 (ACSM running equation), b) regression analysis model using enter method and c) stepwise method based on the measured data of VO2.

## How accurate is Garmin VO2max?

The results from these runners found that Garmin’s VO2 max estimation was 95% correct and the error was less than 3.5ml/kg/min. The results are reasonably accurate granting most sub maximal testing has an error of 10-15%. While this all sounds too good to be true there are some other factors that come into play.

## Does losing weight increase VO2max?

Despite the significant weight loss, VO2max increased significantly (P < 0.001) from entry (19.2 +/- 3.0 mL/kg/min) to completion of 10 weeks (22.4 +/- 5.8 mL/kg/min). However, absolute VO2max L/min was unchanged.
