How to evaluate your fitness test result

If you have tried one of the fitness tests, the next question is off course how the result should be evaluated. In this guide you will find reference values for different types of persons and populations.

The values below are fitness levels expressed as maximal oxygen uptake pr. kg body weight (ml/kg/min) - also termed "relative VO2max". The values are represent data from USA, Canada and 7 european countries. The third table represent how you would inteprete results on elite athletes.

Normal population - Males:
vo2max men

Normal population - Females:
vo2max women


World class athletes (running, bicycling, rowing, cross country skiing etc.):
vo2max men

The fitness value is calculated as maximal oxygen uptake divided by body weight. Therefore, in order to get a high value you should keep your body weight low and your circulatory capacity high.

The fitness value is a bit unfair to people with a high body weight. It is more difficult for bigger persons to achieve a high value than for smaller persons. A more fair comparison can be achieved by calculating a fitness value in wich maximal oxygen uptake is divided by body weight raised to the power of 0.73.

show what you genuinely feel and everything will be good. I hope i have given the answer to your question.
Common compliments or comments are too boring. If a girl is beautiful, it is likely that she has heard "You are very beautiful" throughout her entire life. You telling that again won't make much of a difference. Rather comment on her dress, nail-polish, earings, eyelashes, etc. Say something situational,

Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.

Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal
but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm
thinking about creating my own but I'm not
sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
