The purpose of this investigation was to explore an alternative field test to estimate maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) using a one-mile walk test. VO2max was determined in 343 healthy adult (males = 165, females = 178) subjects 30 to 69 yr using a treadmill protocol (mean +/- SD: VO2max = 37.0 +/- 10.7 ml X kg-1 X min-1). Each subject performed...

... V O 2 max [mL kg −1 min −1 ] describes the maximum rate of oxygen consumption during exercise. The 1-mile walking test is a validated and economical method to estimate the V O 2 max indirectly [45]. In preparation for the 1-mile walking test data was collected on weight, age and gender of every person. ...

... An important issue is whether fast walking is an intense enough activity to elicit a cardiovasculartraining effect and how fast a patient must walk to gain some training effects. In a study [63] of >300 healthy adults, 67% of men and 91% of women achieved a training heart rate (e.g. >70% of maximal heart rate) when asked to walk a mile briskly. ...
... whereby exposure to maximal or exhaustive activities was thought to be ill-advisable because of the health risk it posed to patients [13,14]. Over the years, a number of walking [15][16][17][18][19], cycling [14,[20][21][22], and running [23][24][25] SMFT have been administered among clinical and healthy populations. These tests involve single or multiple continuous steady-state protocols, with some prescribing an absolute standardized intensity, while others include relative intensity ranges, or self-paced protocols (refer to File 1 in the Electronic Supplementary Material [ESM]). ...
