Purpose: The purpose of the lab was to determine the steady state of VO 2 and heart rate, which can be seen in three steady points. With the graph, we are then given an equation, which can then predict the maximum VO 2 . Then, we will be able to see the progression of the subject’s caloric expenditure, and we will be able to estimate the subject’s calories expended at different heart rate (when doing various activities such as walking, jogging, and stair-climbing). I don’t think that you can use someone else’s regression line, because that person can be more or less active and have different heart rates. There are a lot of variables that can affect the heart rate and VO 2 expenditure. Because of these differences, it would not be the most accurate to use someone else’s data or regression line to predict my own caloric expenditure. I would only deceive myself with the conclusions. No, one could not use their own regression to estimate their caloric expenditure at
