1. See attached graph. Based on the results the equivalent MET value was 12 METs. 2. The three predicted Vo2max values are 42 (from Lauren’s treadmill extrapolation graph) 49.5179 (the non exercise test value) and 62.1 (Brittany’s bike test) all in ml/kg/min. The values obtained from the nonexercise test and the bike test were obtained from the same subject. With these results there is definitely some room for error in that Table 3 only went up to 150 watts, when the subject was actually pedaling at 175 watts, so we used the 150 watt value for the calculations. There was obviously some underestimation done between the nonexercise test values and the bike test on the same subject. Essentially these tests were very different. The treadmill test used an extrapolation method to estimate the Vo2max without

Unformatted text preview: even reaching a maximal exercise. 3. If the subject participating is not healthy enough, or has pre existing medical inhibitions that limit their ability/safety on a vo2max test, then it would be beneficial to do a submaximal test. The Non exercise test is good in theory if the person is able to accurately and honestly judge their physical abilities. The Vo2max tests are very practical because large groups of people can be tested in a short duration without the use of expensive equipment that is not always attainable. 4. See attached graph. In last weeks lab, we performed the most accurate method of testing Vo2 max. Laurens data was retrieved from the treadmill, Elliots results were based on the bike so exercise equipment can definitely account for the differences....
