A regression equation for the estimation of VO2 MAX in Nepalese male adults
Keywords:Beep test, Aerobic capacity, Maximum oxygen uptake capacity, Cardiovascular fitness, Nepalese male
The purpose of the study was to validate the applicability of 20-meter multi stage shuttle run test in Nepalese male College students. 40 Nepalese students were recruited for the study. Direct estimation of cardiorespiratory endurance (VO2max) comprised treadmill exercise followed by expired gas analysis by scholander micro-gas analyzer whereas VO2max was indirectly predicted by the 20-meter multistage shuttle run test. The difference between the mean (SD) VO2max values of direct measurement (VO2max = 39.29+/-1.98 ml/kg/min) and 20-meter multi stage shuttle run test (SPVO2max = 39.20+/-2.27 ml/kg/min) was statistically insignificant (p >0.10). Limits of agreement analysis also suggest that the 20-m multistage shuttle run test can be applied for use with the studied population. The results suggest that the application of the present form of 20-meter multistage shuttle run test be justified in the studied population. For better prediction of VO2max a new equation has been developed based on present data.
