Elite athletes use VO2Max reading to show their fitness and performance levels.
VO2 Max shows the peak oxygen intake per minute. The test name stems from the terms Volume, Oxygen and Maximum.

Below show the two graphs for VO2 max readings.

My VO2Max reading on 5 October 2013 was 24.16. It is just barely Fair for my age. I need to work on it to improve my VO2Max data.

Graph shows Relative VO2 max  per body weight norms

Graph for absolute VO2 Max norms.

You can get a quick estimate of your VO2Max by using the formula below:

VO2Max =15X HRmax devide by HRrest

Take care
