Maximal Oxygen Intake and Maximal Work Performance of Active College Women.
Higgs, Susanne L.
Maximal oxygen intake and associated physiological variables were measured during strenuous exercise on women subjects (N=20 physical education majors). Following assessment of maximal oxygen intake, all subjects underwent a performance test at the work level which had elicited their maximal oxygen intake. Mean maximal oxygen intake was 41.32 m1./kg./min. and mean maximal heart rate was 185.8 bts./min. In the endurance performance test, the mean run time for all subjects was 4:35.8 minutes. Correlation between maximal oxygen intake and performance time was significant (r=.066). However, a highly significant correlation was obtained between maximal oxygen intake and physical work done during the performance test (r=.64). A two-page bibliography is included, along with three tables of statistical data. (Author/BRB)
