Influence of body mass on maximal oxygen uptake: Effect of sample size Article in European Journal of Applied Physiology 84(3) April with 89 Reads How we measure 'reads'. To improve maximal oxygen uptake, a frequency of _____ training sessions of high intensity per week is recommended. a. Three to five to minute b. Five to six to minute c. Three to five to minute d. Five to six to minute. A test to determine VO2 max measures the maximum amount of oxygen you can take in during maximum exertion. Measuring oxygen uptake is one way of measuring exercise intensity. VO2 max is also an indicator for endurance for sports such as cross-country skiing, triathalons and long-distance running. maximum oxygen uptake: the greatest volume of oxygen that can be absorbed from the lungs by the blood. Also called aerobic capacity.

PMID: Cited by: Background Cardiorespiratory fitness measured by treadmill testing has prognostic significance in determining mortality with cardiovascular and other chronic disease states. The accuracy of a recently developed method for estimating maximal oxygen uptake (VO2peak), the heart rate index (HRI), is dependent only on heart rate (HR) and was tested against oxygen uptake (VO2), either measured or Cited by: 2. Maximal oxygen uptake declines to a greater extent in women than in men during the aging process. a. true *b. false Title: Aging in Sport Maximal oxygen uptake does not change significantly during the aging process if training intensity is maintained. *a. true b. false Title: Aging in Sport   Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) is a widely reported measure of aerobic fitness. VO2max is assessed during a graded exercise test. This test is traditionally conducted using: 1) a treadmill 2) a lower extremity ergometer 3) an upper extremity ergometer 4) a combination of upper and lower extremity ergometer.

The maximal rate of oxygen uptake is the gold standard measurement for aerobic capacity. It is primarily limited by the maximal heart rate and cardiac stroke volume during exercise. A cardiac limit to performance can be best evaluated by measurement of oxygen pulse, the volume of oxygen ejected with each ventricular contraction. This. VO2max is the highest rate at which oxygen can be taken up and used by the body during exercise, and is commonly regarded as setting the upper limit for performance in endurance events. It is largely determined by genetics, and in a highly trained athlete is unlikely to improve much with further training. Maximal oxygen uptake, a measure of oxygen transport to muscle, sets the upper limit for performance in endurance events. Figure 10 shows the relationship (r = ) between ˙VO 2max and time for a mile run in runners with ˙VO 2max values ranging from to mLkg -1 min -1 (18).
