General

See the tables and results of the VO2 Max Score below. Did you score well or not so well? The Astrand cycle test is an easy submaximal test that says something about your endurance/stamina. The test is easy to carry out.

Calculate VO2max score

A person’s VO2 Max can be measured in a variety of ways. For instance, using the Astrand Cycling Test or the Cooper test. A person’s V02 Max says something about this person’s maximum oxygen uptake. Maximum oxygen uptake in turn says something about someone’s endurance. The VO2 Max can be calculated using handy calculators and submaximal tests. However, the most accurate way is to also measure the gas expiration (Co2). This is often a maximum test. This test is exclusively conducted under professional supervision and is only done for healthy and trained athletes.
