Performance in two field tests was compared with maximum oxygen uptake (V02max) and anaerobic threshold in 42 male army staff. V02max was measured directly during incremental treadmill exercise. Anaerobic threshold was determined simultaneously from changes in ventilation and gas-exchange. The time to run 2.4 km and the distance covered in 12 minutes were each measured within a week of the laboratory assessments. V02max ranged from 39.8 to 66.0 ml kg-1min-1 with a mean of 50.8 ml kg-1 min-1 (SD… CONTINUE READING
