After doing the experiment you start to notice how oxygenuptake is a key of physiological measure of the cardiovascular fitness, thehigher your work ethics the more VO2 is produced. It is a normally a direct relationshipuntil the participant isn’t able push through any further “A linear increase in work rate appears elicit a strictly linearresponse of VO2”. (James et al. 1988) when doing this study, the mainpurpose was to investigate the physical characteristics of the oxygen uptakeVO2 response to the participant cycling, the cycling exercise was kept at thesame intensity for a certain period of time to see if the same level of oxygenuptake stays the same or start to change after a certain period of time. In graph 1 records shows how oxygen the oxygen is beingbreathed out, during the rest period there was 17.6% of oxygen that wasbreathed out.
Even while exercising the oxygen that was breathed out got loweras they started their work out, the meant they were using more oxygen whenworking out compared to when they were just in resting phase. Graph 2 demonstrates the drying for oxygen, graph two showsthat the recorded resting oxygen uptake is usually of oxygen 0.3 per litres.
Rene, Jean Alain (1990) says that resting heart rate control value is 0.28. Whenworking out your oxygen uptake increases by about 0.82 litres per minute whichis 273% of the resting value.The relevance of relative V02 max data is a big important tothe physiological measure of cardiovascular fitness and can help to explaindifferences for performing athletes.
When measuring oxygen uptake, it way tomeasure the intensity of the exercise you are taking part in, the VO2 can alsobe consider as an endurance testing for people who also do cross country,triathlons and long-distance running. Doesn’t matter about the level you takingpart in your VO2 max can still be limited or enhance your performance in yoursport. Internal and external factors can also affect your Vo2 max, factors likeGender, Age, Altitude, Size etc. Gender can take a have a huge impact infemales have they intended to have lower Vo2 max compared to the men Vo2 max,this is mainly due to physiology. Whereas men are generally more physicallylarger than women so they have a larger heart that make it easier for them topump blood to where they mainly need whereas woman would have to work two timeabout what the men are working.
When it comes to age young people are intendedto have a very good VO2 max than older people ideally ages 18-25 intend to havetheir peak VO2 max of their lives, however it gradually decreases as they getolder. VO2 max stage is the max state the amount of oxygen your body is able toconsume during the exercise and one of the main element is to capably transportoxygen around the body and to the right muscle so that your muscles are able toperform.
