Prepare forms and record basic information such age, height, body weight, gender, test conditions.

Support Center Support Center. As a result, this particular test may be a useful assessment tool for athletes who compete in sports of a similar nature.

Calibrate and adjust the cycle ergometer. 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.

See more details of pre-test procedures. Explain the test procedures to the subject. Based around the same principle and with modern technology, Monark Exercise is one of the leading manufacturers of ergometers for testing and protocil.

Astrand 6-minute Cycle Test

An analysis of age and other factors related astranf maximal oxygen uptake. ABOUT contact author info advertising. Following this, the subject pedals for 6 minutes at a workload chosen to try and elicit a steady-state heart rate between and bpm. The steady state heart rate is looked up on published tablesto determine an estimation of VO 2max.

Validity of the Astrand-Ryhming nomogram for predicting maximal oxygen intake.

Prediction of maximal oxygen uptake in bije, ages years. Enter the wheel “Diameter” centimetres”rpm” and then select the ‘Calculate’ button. Generally the lower the heart beat the better your fitness. Heart rate is measured every minute, and the steady state heart rate is determined. Open in a separate window.

Validity of the Astrand-Ryhming nomogram for predicting maximal oxygen intake.

If the steady-state heart rate achieved is not between and bpm, adjust the workload appropriately and continue for a second 6 minute period. Associated Data Supplementary Materials. Test validity refers to the degree to which the test actually measures what it claims to measure and the extent to which inferences, conclusions, and decisions made on the basis of test scores are appropriate and meaningful.

Astrand 6-minute Cycle Test Testing and measurement are the means of collecting information upon which subsequent performance evaluations and decisions are made but in the analysis, we need to bear in mind the factors that may influence the results.

PAGES home search sitemap store. The Astrand Test is a submaximal cycle tesy aerobic fitness test, based on the relationship between heart rate during work and percentage of maximal aerobic capacity.

You should consider the validity, reliability, costs and ease of use of each test.

The following calculator utilises a series of polynomial equations based on the Astrand-Rhyming Nomogram Astrand [1]. 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.

This test provides a means to monitor the effect of training on the athlete’s physical development. If the estimated values are 0. Nomogram by Astrand and Ryhming as a predictor of maximum oxygen intake. Abstract The purpose of this study yest 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.
