Determining The Validity Of A New Cycle Ergometer Protocol For Estimating Vo(2)Max, James Allen Parrott Apr 2003

Determining The Validity Of A New Cycle Ergometer Protocol For Estimating Vo(2)Max, James Allen Parrott

Human Movement Sciences Theses & Dissertations

The current American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) submaximal cycle ergometer protocol has been evaluated by several researchers for its validity in estimating maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max). It has been found that the ACSM protocol overestimates VO2max by 28% on average (Swain and Wright, 1997). It is felt that the short stage duration, only 3 minutes, of the ACSM protocol is largely responsible for this overestimation. The new submaximal cycle ergometer protocol evaluated here utilizes a 6-minute stage in an attempt to reduce the overestimation of VO2max while increasing the overall test validity.

A regression performed ...
