Cardiovascular Fitness: A Comparison of Laboratory and Field-Based Measurements (Project from a semester at Roehampton University, U.K.)

The ability of athletes to utilize oxygen is often critical to athletic performance. Various lab procedures are often used by exercise physiologists and coaches to determine cardiovascular fitness levels. These analyses can be expensive, time consuming, and/or unavailable to many individuals. Alternative field-based tests, such as the Bleep Test and Yo-Yo Run, have been developed to more easily and cost-effectively assess cardiovascular conditioning. Data comparisons from a laboratory-based cycle ergometer test and the Bleep Test will be analyzed and presented in this presentation. The data was collected at Roehampton University in the U.K. during a semester study abroad.
