What are some submaximal exercise tests?

Estimated Peak Aerobic Power; Submaximal Exercise Tests

  • Modified Bruce Treadmill Test.
  • Astrand-Ryhming Cycle Ergometer Test.
  • Chester Step Test.
  • Duke Activity Status Index.

What is a submaximal cardiovascular test?

A submaximal aerobic test involves exercising 75-85% predicted max heart rate. Generally completed on bicycle ergometer. Heart rate and workload are used to predict maximum oxygen uptake. Great test to determine cardiovascular fitness. Test takes approximately 12-15 minutes.

What is the purpose of a submaximal exercise test?

Purpose: Submaximal aerobic exercise testing is utilized with a variety of populations to assess fitness level and predict maximal oxygen uptake (VO2peak) when a maximal test is not possible or preferable.

What is maximal and submaximal testing?

Maximal tests are accurate, but require medical monitoring when testing workers at medical risk. Submaximal tests are less accurate, but are safer and faster than a maximal test.

What is the difference between a maximal and submaximal exercise test?

What are three assumptions of submaximal testing?

Heart rate is allowed to reach steady-state at each stage of the test. The age-predicted maximal HR is uniform (220 J age) with a prediction error of 10% to 15%. A linear relationship exists between HR and oxygen uptake. Mechanical efficiency is the same for everyone (e.g., VO2 at a given work rate).

How is the cardiovascular system affected by submaximal exercise?

Cardiac output during submaximal exercise does not increase after training, but studies using high-speed treadmills and measurement of cardiac output at maximal heart rates may reveal improvements in maximal oxygen uptake due to increased stroke volumes, as occurs in humans.
