EFFECTS OF 2- MINUTES ACTIVE RECOVERY ON MAXIMAL OXYGEN CONSUMPTION VALUES DURING ARM ERGOMETRY A. Bosak 4 , J. Kang 8 , G. Marias , W. McArdle 3 , N. Tordi , R. Walker 3 The physiological responses to arm ergometry have caught the interests of many exercise scientists during the last fifteen years. Also, finding ways to influence protocol to obtain the highest VO2 value. It’s known that the treadmill and leg cycle ergometer can produce higher VO2 peak values in comparison to the upper body and lower legs due to the activation of greater muscle mass. However, the potential effects of this sequence (2min active recovery), on peak VO2 values during arm ergometry testing, were not examined. PURPOSE: To evaluate the changes in peak VO2 values following a 2min active recovery after an arm ergometry test to volitional exhaustion. METHODS: 14 males and 14 females of average fitness level completed a maximal graded arm ergometry test to volitional exhaustion. The tests were completed on a Swedish Monark 868 Leg Cycle
