VO2 Max and Lactate Threshold

The VO2 (volume of oxygen) Max Test is considered the best measurement of cardiorespiratory fitness. It determines your maximum aerobic capacity, the body's ability to transport and utilize oxygen during exercise. A very high level of physical exertion is required to conduct this test.

Lactate Threshold is the maximal intensity that one can maintain for a period of time without tipping the balance between production and clearance of lactate in the blood. Once tipped, muscle fatigue will ensue.

Test Length: 2 hours
