Title: Correlation between body fat percentage and maximal exercise (VO2MAX) in collegiate female track athletes
Author: Campos, Jennifer
Abstract: A VO2max test is used to determine the rate of utilization of oxygen which is a measure of cardiorespiratory endurance and aerobic fitness. A relative VO2max is expressed according to body weight in milliliters of oxygen consumed per kilogram of body weight per minute. The amount of body fat we maintain is dependent on diet, exercise, and heredity. Body fat can be measured by several different methods. Hydrostatic weighing determines body fat percentage through the displacement of water and is considered the gold standard in most Exercise Science Programs.
