We've all heard many things about VO2 max and how having a higher VO2 max leads to better endurance performance. Is there anything such as VO2 min, which I would refer to as the oxygen consumption at rest? Since having a VO2 min that is low would mean that your body does not require as much oxygen due to a better economy of all your organs and muscles, does it?? It is pretty much the same analogy as having the same VO2 max but with a better economy, you can go the distance in a shorter time. It would too mean that during maximal endurance exercise, your other systems do not require as much oxygen consumption and the VO2 reserve could be channeled to your muscles. That could mean a better endurance performance. Views please?
