I just did a VO2 max test at my university for a study, they made me breathe through a mouthpiece and ride a stationary bike. They also measured my skin folds, axilla (11mm), pectorals (11mm), stomach (16mm), and suprailliac (11mm). What does that equate to in body fat percentage? i'm 5'8", 140lbs.
The VO2 max test went as followed:
5 min at 50W
5 min stretch
325W 1min --- I couldn't pedal anymore after this. HR at 193bpm.
They haven't given me my numbers yet, I'm assuming I'll get it next week when I come back for the submaximal tests for their study.
What do these numbers mean? Am I exceptionally weak? How do I calculate my VO2 max from this?
