The leveling of oxygen uptake at high work loads has been utilized to define maximal VO2 during progressive exercise testing. Exercise studies in children have indicated, however, that a VO2 plateau can commonly be demonstrated in less than one half of subjects. To examine the potential contributions of subject effort, aerobic fitness, and nonaerobic performance to this variability, 15 children ages 7 to 10 years performed progressive treadmill walking to exhaustion with a ramp protocol.
