The American doctor Dr. Kenneth Cooper has developed this test. After a good warming-up you run on a track (or a piece way, where a helper measures the distance) in 12 minutes as many meters as possible. Try to run in a gradual speed. Because this is a heavy effort test this test is not suitable for people with a bad health. Do not forget to do after the test a good cooling-down.

Determining maximum oxygen uptake

It is also possible to determine the maximum oxygen uptake (V02max) on the basis of the Cooper test.

Calculator

What distance did you run? meters

Correct?

The maximum oxygen consumption is: ml/kg/min

For the meaning of this value see: Calculation maximum oxygen uptake.
