Prediction of ventilatory threshold from a submaximal one mile walk test
MetadataShow full item record
Maximal oxygen consumption (VOzmax) is considered the gold standard reference for the evaluation of aerobic metabolism. Emerging evidence suggests that ventilatory threshold (VT) is a better way to prescribe exercise than the relative percent concept anchored by VOzmax� Threshold based training may be superior to percentage range-based training in various populations for exercise prescription. Although there are strategies for defining the VT, there is no single, submaximal test that is well-supported for defining the VT.
