I. Purpose The purpose of this laboratory was to learn, and become familiar with, the process of administering and participating in a VO 2 max test. Using data obtained from the testing procedure, this lab also provided an opportunity to learn how to calculate VO2 max . II. Results 1. Minute VO 2 (L/min) VCO 2 (L/min) RER 3:00 0.82 .631 .77 4:02 1.31 .91 .69 5:03 1.33 1.04 .78 6:01 1.52 1.19 .78 7:00 1.79 1.48 .83 8:00 2.13 1.87 .88 9:01 2.77 2.66 .96 9:56 4.13 4.68 1.13 Peak VO 2 = 4.13 L/ min = 58.64 mL/kg/min 2. Based on three of the four criteria I reached VO 2 max. (a) The first criterion, a plateau in VO 2 , was not met during my test. Between my last two stages my VO 2 increased by 28.43 mL/kg/min to 58.64 mL/kg/min, which was well over half the expected increase of 9.074 mL/kg/min. The second criterion, a peak RER greater than or equal to 1.1 was met, as my peak RER value was 1.13. The third criterion, a peak blood lactate level greater than 8.0 mM was met as my peak lactate level was 8.5 mM. The fourth and final criterion, a peak heart rate no less than 10 beats per minute below age-predicted max heart rate, was also met. My age-predicted maximum heart rate is 197 beats per minute and my peak heart rate during the test was 189, or 8 beats less than my age-predicted max.

    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.
