Generally the lower the steady-state heart rate the better your fitness. There are over fitness testsprltocol it’s not easy to choose the best one. Enter your speed and then select the ‘Calculate’ button. To axtrand up with the latest in sport science and this website, subscribe to our newsletter. In its simplest form, this test can be conducted using only a Monark cycle ergometer and a stopwatch.

For an analysis of your VO 2 max score see the VO 2 max page. Test reliability refers to the degree to which a test is consistent and stable in measuring what it is intended to measure. ABOUT contact author info advertising. If the estimated values are 0.

Support Center Support Center. The Astrand Test is a submaximal cycle ergometer aerobic fitness test, based on the relationship between heart rate tset work and percentage of maximal aerobic capacity.

Astrand 6 minute Cycle Test

Nomogram by Astrand and Ryhming as a predictor of maximum oxygen intake. The Wingate Anaerobic test is arguably one of the most famous laboratory fitness tests. Protoocol purpose of this study was to evaluate the validity of the predicted VO2 max from the Astrand-Ryhming nomogram, using the cycle ergometer as the sole exercise mode and following the recommended submaximal test protocol.


These values are vital factors in sports which demand short-duration maximal efforts. The bikes can handle extreme loads and are the obvious buke amongst athletes with tough astrnd on their training and for researchers in sports medicine. As this test only requires the participant to cycle at maximal effort for seconds, its simplicity and time-effectiveness means it is an extremely popular testing protocol. Monark Exercise Sports Tests. Objective The objective of this test is to monitor the athlete’s VO 2 max.

Prediction of maximal oxygen uptake in boys, ages years. An analysis of age and other factors related to maximal oxygen uptake.

For medical use, the product range is especially beneficial as it can be controlled by different ECG systems. Comparison of maximal oxygen uptake values determined by predicted and actual methods. There are published VO 2 max tables and the correlation to actual VO 2 max is high. We are also on facebook and twitter.


Any questions, please ask or search for your answer. Otherwise, the test is completed. The test is suitable in situations when a maximal test is not feasible, for example in health evaluations.

This test provides a means to monitor the effect of training vike the athlete’s physical development. Testing Extra There are over fitness testsso it’s not easy to choose the best one.


There are many other cycling tests and aerobic fitness testssuch as the similar YMCA Cycle ergometer submaximal test. J Appl Physiol7, p. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Explain the test procedures to the subject.

Validity of the Astrand-Ryhming nomogram for predicting maximal oxygen intake.

Perform screening of health risks and obtain informed consent. A nomogram for calculation of aerobic protoco, physical fitness from pulse rate during sub-maximal work.

Astrand-Rhyming Cycle Ergometer Test The Astrand Test is a submaximal cycle ergometer aerobic fitness test best suited in rehabilitation and health purposes. PAGES home search sitemap store. Generally the lower the heart beat the better your fitness. Analysis of the test result is by comparing it with the athlete’s previous results for this test. Br J Sports Med. Although virtually identical SEE and r were found when applying the von Dobeln age correction factors, a significantly lower predicted mean was found p less than.

These results suggest that the Astrand age correction factors should be used in conjunction with the Astrand-Ryhming nomogram, especially when classifying subjects into various fitness classifications. You should consider the validity, reliability, costs and ease of use of each test.

Testing and measurement are the means of collecting information upon which subsequent performance evaluations and decisions are made but in the analysis, we need to bear in mind the factors that may influence the results.
