Elisa Giordano Due: 11/21/06 EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY INTRODUCTION VO 2max is the greatest amount of oxygen that the body can use in one minute per kilogram of body weight and is measured in milliliters. This laboratory experiment looks at three different ways to calculate one’s VO 2max . One calculation uses only a pulse rate and previously calculated constants while the other two methods are exercise related. It can be hypothesized that the values taken from the class will be similar to the three experiments. METHODS The Walking Test: 1. Walk one mile as fast as possible 2. Take note of time, and record 3. Measure heart rate immediately proceeding walk 4. Determine VO 2max from given equation The Step Test: 1. Step up and down (about 16.25” high) on stairs for three minutes 2. Measure heart rate immediately proceeding the three minutes 3. Determine VO 2max from given equation Non-Exercise Data Test 1. Using data tables and given calculation, use body mass index (BMI), physical activity
