The Maximal Oxygen Uptake Verification Phase: a Light at the End of the Tunnel?.
The verification phase of the VO2max assessment has been investigated in this paper published on the Sports Medicine - Open Journal.
Commonly performed during an incremental test to exhaustion, maximal oxygen uptake (V̇O2max) assessment has become a recurring practice in clinical and experimental settings. To validate the test, several criteria were proposed.
In this review the knowledge on the verification phase was updated, while suggestions on how it can be performed (e.g. intensity, duration, recovery) were provided according to population and protocol design.
