Validity of Submaximal Step Tests to Estimate Maximal Oxygen Uptake in Healthy Adults Article (PDF Available) December with 6, Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Aerobic capacity (VO2max) is a strong predictor of health and fitness and is considered a key physiological measure in the healthy adult population. Submaximal step tests provide a safe, simple and ecologically valid means of assessing VO2max in both the general population and a rehabilitation setting.

The Preferred Reporting Items for VO 2max in comparison. Background: This study aimed to test the validity of three different submaximal tests (i.e., 3-min step test with cm step box height (3MST20), 3-min step test with cm step box height (3MST30), and 6-min walk test (6MWT)) in estimating maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) in young and healthy individuals.

A maximal test would be used to measure the direct oxygen consumption and maximum heart rate and the amount of carbon dioxide you expend during the test.

Also, your heart rate and blood pressure are being monitored by a technician or by an exercise physiologist, and sometimes a physician to supervise.

Background. Recently, several authors have proposed the use of a submaximal ‘perceptually regulated exercise test’ (PRET) to predict maximal oxygen uptake ($$\dot{V}{\text{O}}_{2\;\hbox{max} }$$).The PRET involves asking the individual to self-regulate a series of short bouts of exercise corresponding to pre-set ratings of perceived exertion (RPE).Cited by: 8.

Sub-maximal exercise tests do not require all-out effort and can be effective in estimating and predicting your maximal oxygen uptake. Aerobic fitness tests can be done on a treadmill, an exercise bike or on a track or other safe place to walk or : Blake Hagen.

Introduction. Maximal oxygen uptake (V ˙ O 2 max), defined as the highest rate at which the body can transport and utilise oxygen during exercise, 1 is widely accepted as a criterion measure of cardiorespiratory fitness.

2 However, direct assessment of the V ˙ O 2 max requires exercise to volitional exhaustion, which is not advisable for individuals who may be limited by pain, fatigue Cited by: Exercise tests.

The exercise tests listed above were all assessed by one study each, except for the conventional Åstrand test (three studies), the 5-minute walk test (three studies), and a submaximal bicycle ergometer test following a protocol other than the Åstrand test (three studies).Cited by: for submaximal tests (r=), for maximal tests (r=), for “field” tests (r= ), for other laboratory tests (r=).

The body weight and percentage evaluated of non-mass body weight have an insignificant influence on the correlation between maximal oxygen consumption presented in ml kg-1. Background This study used a novel protocol to test the hypothesis that a plateau in oxygen consumption (VO2max) during incremental exercise testing to exhaustion represents the maximal capacity of the cardiovascular system to transport oxygen.

Methods Twenty-six subjects were randomly divided into two groups matched by their initial VO2max. On separate days, the reverse group Cited by: Factors contributing to the gymnastic excellence of the Japanese [microform] / by Kenneth Paul Ourso.

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.

Submaximal graded exercise is any physical activity whose intensity increases at regular intervals up to but never exceeding 85 percent of your maximum heart rate, according to the American Council on Exercise. Among the types of graded exercise tests normally used to find your aerobic capacity are a stationary bike and a treadmill test.

Asignificant positive correlation between oxygen consumption and body weight was obtained under all four conditions ofmeasurement. At rest the two regression lines did not differ in Cited by: 8. Submaximal Treadmill Test The process of this test involves a brisk to fast walking pace ranging for – mph and eliciting a heart rate between % of the age-predicted maximum which should be established during a 4-minute warm-up at 0% grade.

Submaximal tests are used because maximal tests can be dangerous in individuals who are not considered normal healthy subjects and for elite athletes maximal tests would disrupt training load.

Step to a four beat cycle up, up, down, down. At the end of the three minute stepping period, immediately sit down and begin counting the heart rate for one minute. seven submaximal protocols. The Cotten step test mean was different from the remaining six tests. Three step tests had the highest predictions: Cotten test, ml/kg min; Astrand-Rhyming test, mllkg min and Queen's College test, mllkg min.

The Bruce treadmill test produced the fourth highest mean, mllkg min. No differences. Healthy volunteers (age ) (n = 28) performed maximal treadmill exercise to define HRmax.

They also performed submaximal exercise tests based on Edwards' Heart Zones approach. These submaximal tests were: 5-min Walk Test, 1-min Chair Test, 3-min Step Test, Talk Test, 2-min 10 Beat Test, 2 by 4-min Test, and Easy-Moderate-Hard Test.

Aerobic capacity tests are important to evaluate exercise programs and to encourage individuals to have a physically active lifestyle.

Submaximal tests, if proven valid and reliable could be used for estimation of maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max).
