VO2 Max = 15.3x(MHR/RHR) ?? (Read 79 times)

    Probably not the most accurate way of calculating VO2 Max...?

     

    but I did like my score of 59.7

     

    maybe there's still some potential in this bod

     

     

    Anyone know more about this?

      What recent workout or race result did you use to arrive at your VO2 estimate?

       

      (If you want something a bit more flexible than your table...see resources, calculator, VO2)

      I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day.

        I used the formula I posted in headline...

          According to most common reference material, you are correct with this statement.

            I  can't think of any physical basis for that formula.  I expect it would be pretty easy to find numerous counter examples.

             

            Also, your race time chart is way off.  Basing off the mile time, the other times are too slow assuming adequate training.

              lab tested VO2max of 69.

              PRs (with some degree of focused training for each):

              5:12 (indoor full mile - 1609m)

              16:58 (17:10 on a certified course)

              As my coach said when I gave him my VO2max value, "Great, but I still want to know a lot more about you as an athlete."
