Definition of Aerobic Capacity
Aerobic capacity is defined as the ability to take in, transport and use oxygen to sustain prolonged periods of aerobic/sub-maximal work.
1 of 11
Definition of VO2 Max
The highest rate of oxygen consumption attainable during maximal/exhaustive work
2 of 11
Three factors that affect a performers VO2 max?
Age,gender,training
3 of 11
Apply F from FITT to an aerobic capacity programme
F= Frequency - for example minimum 3-5 times a week for a minimum of 12 weeks
4 of 11
Apply I from FITT to an aerobic capacity programme
I = Intensity, measured using HR per cent within the critical threshold/training zone
5 of 11
Apply T from FITT to an aerobic capacity programme
T = Time/duration, for example a minimum of 3-5 minutes to 40+ minutes
6 of 11
Apply T from FITT to an aerobic capacity programme
T = Type: overloading the aerobic energy systems
7 of 11
Name Two types of measurement of aerobic capacity?
Physical working capacity test (PWC 170) and Multi stage fitness test(MSFT)
8 of 11
What is PWC 170?
Physical working capacity test (PWC 170) - sub maximal test on a cycle ergometer. The performer cycles at three progressive low to moderate work intensities and their HR values are recorded.
9 of 11
What is MSFT?
Multi stage fitness test(MSFT) - Progressive and maximal 20 metre shuttle run test, with the 20 metre distance timed by a bleep which progressively becomes shorter until the athlete cannot keep up.
