Abstract

Two widely used tests for predicting max VO2 are the Astrand-Ryhming Nomogram (ARN) and the National YMCA bicycle ergometer test. While both tests predict max VO2 from heart rate and workload, the ARN also uses submaximal oxygen uptake as a parameter; The purpose of this study was to determine which of the 3 types of exercises used with the Astrand-Ryhming nomogram predicted max VO2 most accurately; Thirty subject's between the ages of 18 and 35 performed maximally on a treadmill and bicycle ergometer. Oxygen uptake and heart rate were measured at both maximal and submaximal workloads using open circuit spirometry and electrocardiography, respectively.
