The VO2 Max (Volume Oxygen Max) connotes the amount of oxygen your body can transport. In other words, aerobic capacity of a person can best be determined by this index. The amount of oxygen your blood can carry is directly proportional to the level of activity. The longer and faster you go, the greater extent of oxygen you carry. Thus, VO2 Max quantifies how smoothly the supply of oxygen is carried by your heart. This is rightfully called as maximal oxygen consumption.
Thus, our VO2 Max Calculator estimates the right amount of VO2 max needed for you. The only inputs are your time taken to finish a walk of one mile and the heart rate taken instantly after the above-said walk. You need to walk very fast in order to obtain the best results.
Recording your VO2 Max values over a period of time will help you maintain your level of fitness and thus assist you in sustaining a regular healthy lifestyle.
