Two stage bicycle test

Two stage bicycle testThis is a submaximal test conducted on a bicycle ergometer. Heart rate is monitored at two different workloads.

1. This test is performed on a bicycle ergometer that can accurately measure workload in watts. You also need a heart rate monitor.
2. First workload is chosen so that heart rate stabilizes between 120 and 140 bpm after 5 minutes of bicycling.
3. Second workload is chosen so that heart rate stabilizes between 140 and 160 bpm after an additional 5 minutes of bicycling.
3. Enter workload in watts and heart rate for the two workloads

Workload 1
Heart Rate 1
Workload 2
Heart Rate 2
This calculator is also included in Fitness Test pro
Get it from App Store



This test is based on the linear relationship between heart rate and VO2. The graphical output in the calculator illustrates this. By extrapolating from the datasets for workload 1 and workload 2 up to estimated maximal heart rate, a maximal workload is calculated. This estimated maximal workload is then converted to an oxygen uptake. Finally to get relative VO2max the oxygen uptake is divided by body weight.

The calculator uses 220 - age to estimate maximal heart rate. If you know the actual maximal heart rate you can enter the specific age into the calculator that will correspond to the known maximal heart rate. Let's say that known maximal heart rate is 180 and the person tested is age 30. You could then enter age 40 in to calculator as this will result in an estimated maximal heart rate of 180. To get a correct evaluation of the result, you should then use the tables presented here: How to evaluate your fitness test result

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a
blog that's both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt,
you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that
too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy I found this in my hunt for something relating
to this.

Stop by my web blog - ha (Asa:

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words
in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.

I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue
or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought
I'd post to let you know. The design look great though!
Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos

This test maxes out far below the capacities of a lot of cyclists, I think! I know I'm off the charts and I'm not even close to a lot of the competitive cyclists I know.
