Cardiorespiratory fitness is often misdiagnosed

24 septiembre 2014

Scaling maximal oxygen uptake and maximal workload by body weight confounds measures of cardiorespiratory fitness, a recent study has shown. It has been a common practice in exercise testing to scale the results by body weight and, according to researchers, this practice should be abandoned. More reliable data on cardiorespiratory fitness can be observed by using lean mass proportional measures, they say.
