>Running 101>So would anyone care to explain VO2...
JK, that was your VO2 for the specific activity, as estimated by an imprecise formula. It was not your VO2max. If it were your true VO2max, you'd never get any better.

I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Whatever. How do I unclog my toilet?
Which one? There were several statements.
Running is stupid
The last one.
Right on Hereford...
Nope. Losing a pound of fat does nothing to your VO2max. When you train or lose weight, you may improve your speed or your efficiency or your cardiac output to the point that you can approach your true VO2max with a given activity's VO2. But ultimately you will bump into your body's maximal ability, its VO2max. This does not change with weight loss or exercise.
It is on the internet, so it must be true.
Trent, I'm not sure why we don't understand each other, here.
Well, here's one: http://www.exercisestandards.org/vo2.htm
He's not a plumber. He's a doctor.
Why wouldn't a change in body mass result in a change in VO2max?
I make it a point never to argue with plumbers about toilets.
