Abstract The tedt of this study aastrand 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.

Comparison of maximal oxygen uptake values determined by predicted and actual methods. The following calculator utilises a series of polynomial equations based on the Astrand-Rhyming Nomogram Astrand [1].
