The purpose of this investigation was to assess the validity of a 500-yard shallow water run test to determine peak aerobic power (VO2peak) and to compare it with the commonly used 1.5-mile run test. Subjects included 15 men and 28 women who completed two trials each of a 500-yard shallow water run test and a 1.5-mile run and then completed a graded exercise test on a treadmill to determine VO2peak. Correlation coefficients with measured VO2peak were -0.89 and -0.80 for the 1.5-mile and 500… CONTINUE READING
