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

This test provides a means to monitor the effect of training on the athlete’s physical development. Test validity refers to the degree to which the test actually measures what it claims to measure and the extent to which inferences, conclusions, and decisions made on the basis of test scores are appropriate and meaningful.

There are published VO 2 max tables and the correlation to actual VO 2 max is high. Testing Extra There are over fitness testsso it’s not easy to choose the best one. Associated Data Supplementary Materials. Monark Exercise Sports Tests.

Support Center Support Center. Perform screening of health risks and obtain informed consent. Use our guide to conducting, recording, and interpreting fitness tests. For an assessment of your VO 2 max see the VO 2 max normative data tables. You should consider the validity, reliability, costs and ease of use of each test. The test is suitable in situations when a maximal test is not feasible, for example in health evaluations. PAGES pritocol search sitemap store. Athletes pedal on a cycle ergometer at a constant workload for 7 minutes.

Astrand-Rhyming Cycle Ergometer Test The Astrand Test is a submaximal cycle ergometer aerobic fitness test best suited in rehabilitation and health purposes. Br J Sports Med. Required Resources To undertake this test, you will require: Open in a separate window. Images in this protoco, pa on p. The Astrand Test is a submaximal cycle ergometer aerobic fitness test best suited in rehabilitation pritocol health purposes. This test is suitable for endurance athletes and players of endurance sports e.


Astrand 6-minute Cycle 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.

Astrand-Rhyming Cycle Ergometer Test

Copyright and License information Disclaimer. Analysis of the test result is by comparing it with the athlete’s previous results for this test. For an analysis of your VO 2 max score see the VO 2 max page.

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.

As a result, this particular test may be a useful assessment tool for athletes who compete in sports of a similar nature. The steady state heart rate is looked up on published tablesto determine an estimation of VO 2max.

Prediction of maximal oxygen uptake in boys, ages years.


This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Record heart rate every minute during the test. The following link provides a variety of factors that may influence the results and therefore the test reliability. 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. The objective of the 6-minute submaximal cycle test is to monitor the VO 2 max, which is beneficial for athletes as well as for medical rehabilitation as patients do not need to perform at maximum capacity.

Enter the wheel “Diameter” centimetres”rpm” and then select the ‘Calculate’ button.


Calibrate and adjust the cycle ergometer. Wstrand 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.

For medical use, the product range is especially beneficial as it can be controlled by different ECG systems.


A nomogram for calculation of aerobic capacity physical fitness from pulse rate during sub-maximal astrabd. Otherwise, the test is completed. Comparison of maximal oxygen uptake values determined by predicted and actual methods.

Though this test is predominantly performed on a cycle ergometer, it can also be performed on an arm crank ergometer. We are also on facebook and twitter. The steady-state heart rate and workload are looked up on the nomogram to determine an estimation of VO 2max.

J Appl Physiol7, p. Generally the lower the heart beat the better your fitness. The following calculator utilises a series of polynomial equations based on the Astrand-Rhyming Nomogram Astrand [1]. The bikes can handle extreme loads and are the obvious choice amongst athletes with tough demands on their training and for researchers protocool sports medicine.

See more details of pre-test procedures. In its simplest form, this test can be conducted using only a Monark cycle astramd and a stopwatch.

If the estimated values are 0. To keep up with the latest in sport science and this website, subscribe to our newsletter. Since then, it has undergone modifications, and has also been used as a basis to design newer tests of a similar nature. The Wingate Anaerobic test is arguably one of the most famous laboratory fitness tests.
