Also covered in the lab were the principles and concepts of expressing VO 2 max in relative and absolute units, as well as the effects of state of training and body composition on VO 2 max. The lab showed us how to interpret and apply aerobic capacity results as well as how to determine our individual aerobic capacity classification. Results (1) See data section for data sheet. (2) a.

Research Hypothesis: Predicted VO 2 max and percent body fat calculated from the skinfolds test are positively correlated. p<0.05, df= 16-2=14,
