What is VO2 Max and What It Is Not?

  1. VO2 max refers to the maximum amount of oxygen you can utilize during exercise.
  2. It's commonly used to test the aerobic endurance or cardiovascular fitness of athletes before and at the end of a training cycle.
  3. VO2 max is measured in milliliters of oxygen consumed in one minute, per kilogram of body weight (mL/kg/min).Β 
  4. It's not the same thing as heart rate, though it can be just as effective, if not more so, to measure and track your fitness progress.
  5. VO2 isn't excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), which refers to the increase in oxygen your body uses after a workout, not during.
