How to evaluate your fitness test result

If you have tried one of the fitness tests, the next question is off course how the result should be evaluated. In this guide you will find reference values for different types of persons and populations.

The values below are fitness levels expressed as maximal oxygen uptake pr. kg body weight (ml/kg/min) - also termed "relative VO2max". The values are represent data from USA, Canada and 7 european countries. The third table represent how you would inteprete results on elite athletes.

Normal population - Males:
vo2max men

Normal population - Females:
vo2max women


World class athletes (running, bicycling, rowing, cross country skiing etc.):
vo2max men

The fitness value is calculated as maximal oxygen uptake divided by body weight. Therefore, in order to get a high value you should keep your body weight low and your circulatory capacity high.

The fitness value is a bit unfair to people with a high body weight. It is more difficult for bigger persons to achieve a high value than for smaller persons. A more fair comparison can be achieved by calculating a fitness value in wich maximal oxygen uptake is divided by body weight raised to the power of 0.73.

I do believe all the concepts you've introduced for your
post. They're really convincing and can certainly work.
Still, the posts are too short for beginners.
Could you please extend them a bit from next time?
Thanks for the post.

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured
I'd ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or
maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
My site discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit
from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me

Excellent blog by the way!
