Agostini et al reported an equation for predicting peak oxygen consumption during exercise.

Method of exercise: cycle ergometer or treadmill



(1) sex

(2) height in centimeters

(3) age in years


predicted peak VO2 for a male in mL per minute =

= ((height) - (age)) * 20


predicted peak VO2 for a female in mL per minute =

= ((height) - (age)) * 14
