The Astrand Test is a submaximal cycle ergometer aerobic fitness test best suited in rehabilitation and health purposes. For an assessment of your VO 2 max see the VO 2 max normative data tables.
Attach heart rate monitor. It is expected that, with appropriate training between each test, the analysis would indicate an improvement in tewt athlete’s VO 2 max.
Astrand 6 minute Cycle Test
See more details of pre-test procedures. Monark Exercise Sports Tests.
Generally the lower the steady-state heart rate the better your fitness. The test is suitable in situations when a astranx test is not feasible, for example in health evaluations.
If the steady-state heart rate achieved is not between and bpm, adjust the workload appropriately and continue for a second 6 minute period.
Astrand 6-minute Cycle Test Testing astarnd measurement are the means of collecting information upon which subsequent performance evaluations and decisions are made but in the analysis, we aastrand to bear in mind the factors that may influence the results. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the validity of the predicted VO2 max from the Astrand-Ryhming nomogram, using the cycle ergometer as the sole exercise mode and following the recommended submaximal test protocol.
As this test only requires the participant to cycle at maximal effort for seconds, its simplicity and time-effectiveness means it is an extremely popular testing protocol.

Although virtually identical SEE and r were found when applying the von Dobeln age correction factors, a significantly lower predicted mean was found p less than. Enter your speed and then select the ‘Calculate’ button.
A WORKLOAD SELECTION PROCEDURE FOR THE ÅSTRAND-RYHMING TEST FOR WOMEN.
The steady-state heart rate and workload are looked up on the nomogram to determine an estimation of VO 2max. Enter the wheel “Diameter” centimetres”rpm” and then select the ‘Calculate’ button. Comparison of maximal oxygen uptake values determined by predicted and actual methods. Use our guide to conducting, recording, and interpreting fitness tests.
PAGES home search sitemap store. Reliability will depend upon how strict the test is conducted and the individual’s level of motivation to perform the test. Generally the lower the heart beat the better your fitness. For an analysis of your VO 2 max score see the VO 2 max page.
Validity of the Astrand-Ryhming nomogram for predicting maximal oxygen intake.
Perform screening of health risks and obtain informed consent. These values are vital factors in sports which demand short-duration maximal efforts. Objective The objective of this test is to monitor the athlete’s VO 2 max. Br J Sports Med. An analysis of age and other factors related to maximal oxygen uptake. The following atsrand provides a variety of factors that may influence the results and therefore the test reliability.
Otherwise, the test nike completed. For the calculator, the work rate range is: This test provides a means to monitor the effect of training on the athlete’s physical development.
Following this, the subject pedals for 6 minutes at a workload chosen to try and elicit a steady-state heart rate between and bpm. Abstract The purpose of this study was to evaluate the validity of the predicted VO2 max from the Astrand-Ryhming nomogram, using the cycle ergometer as the sole exercise mode and tesh the recommended submaximal test protocol.
There are many other cycling tests and aerobic fitness testssuch as the similar YMCA Cycle ergometer submaximal test. Analysis of the test result is by comparing it with the athlete’s previous results for this test.
There are over fitness testsso it’s not easy to choose the best one. Associated Data Supplementary Materials. Prepare forms and record basic information such age, height, body weight, gender, test conditions.
