The energy cost of stepping with a known height and pace is relatively independent on age, gender and training status.

As this test is performed until stepping pace no longer can be followed, maximal oxygen uptake can be estimated with reasonable accuracy.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand.

It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking
forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of

Many syѕtems һave become less difficult to
navigate and readily available contacts and many types of their associated
informatіon like e-mail social media details easily. Today, most of սs have
an app on the smartphone that allows them to easily scan and focus
a QR code. With it you recruit a mobile camera, internet access,
FM raɗi᧐ and social networking compatibility.

The result is not age dependent, because movement economy in this type of stepping does not differ between age groups (as opposed to running). Weight is taken in to account in the calculation.

does the results for this test depend on age in the calculation? or is this completely independent of age? is the VO2 the same for a 12 year old boy who weighs 110 as a 80 year old woman who weighs 110 if their performance is the same?
