Purpose Cardiorespiratory fitness is measured by seeing how well the cardiorespiratoty system transports and uses oxygen. The highest rate of oxygen consumption an individual is capable of during maximum physical effort is called maximal oxygen consumption, or VO 2max . Through this lab I will examine my VO 2max by participating in a 1-mile walk test and a 1.5 mile run-walk test. Methods 1-mile walk test: A track or course that provides a measurement of 1 mile A stopwatch, clock, or watch with a second hand A weight scale Measure your body weight (in pounds) before taking the test Warm up before taking the test. Do some walking easy jogging, or calisthenics and some stretching exercises Cover the 1-mile course as quickly as possible. Get a partner to monitor your time. Walk at a pace that is brisk but comfortable. You must raise your heart rate above 120 beats per minute (bpm). As soon as you complete the distance, note your time and take your pulse for 10 seconds Cool down after the test by walking slowly for several minutes 1.5-mile Run-Walk Test: A running track or course that is flat and provides exact measurements of up to 1.5 miles

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
