What best describes Maximal Oxygen Consumption (Vo2max)?
  1. The difference between resting and maximal oxygen utilization
  2. Level of stress an activity puts on the body
  3. Excessive training that results in severe fatigue
  4. The highest rate of oxygen use and transportation achieved during maximal physical exertion
Answer - D - Maximum oxygen consumption (Vo2max) is the highest rate of oxygen use and transportation that is achieved during maximal physical exertion. It is not always practical to measure VO2 max because of equipment requirements, time involved, and willingness of client to perform at maximal physical capacity. Therefore, sub maximal tests, such as the YMCA 3 Minute Step Test, are often the preferred method to calculate appropriate training intensities.
