Maximal oxygen uptake was determined in 62 boys each year from age 11 to 15 years. Multiple regression analyses were used to predict treadmill VO2 max at yearly age intervals from size measures and submaximal cycle heart rates. Derived equations were validated in an independent sample of 98 boys of the same age range. In boys aged 12 to 15 years approximately 80% or more of the variance in VO2 max was accounted for by age specific equations employing mass, height and skinfolds as explanatory… CONTINUE READING
