Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) was predicted from maximal power output (MPO) in a progressive cycle ergometer test. The subjects were 232 men and 303 women 15-28 years of age. The relationship between VO2max and MPO was: VO2max (1.min-1) = 0.16 + (0.0117 x MPO) (w). A correlation coefficient of r = 0.88 was found between MPO and VO2max. Test-retest reliability was evaluated by two procedures. Standard deviations of test-retest differences in MPO and VO2max using the same standardized procedure… CONTINUE READING
