YMCA Sub-Maximal Cycle Ergometer Test

The YMCA Sub-Maximal Cycle Ergometer Test is a submaximal cycle ergometer aerobic fitness test. Based on the subject's heart rate response to several submaximal workloads, we can predict what workload, and therefore VO2max, they would have reached if they had continued until their maximum heart rate. There are many other cycling tests and aerobic fitness tests, such as the similar Astrand Cycle ergometer submaximal test.
