BACKGROUND High aerobic fitness is consistently associated with a favorable metabolic risk profile in children. Direct measurement of peak oxygen consumption (VO2peak) is often not feasible, thus indirect tests such as the Andersen test are required in many settings. The present study seeks to determine the reliability and validity of the Andersen test in 10-year-old children. METHODS A total of 118 10-year-old children (67 boys and 51 girls) were recruited from one school and performed four… CONTINUE READING
