VO2 max, or maximal oxygen uptake, is a common measurement linked to aerobic endurance that many athletes use to determine their overall fitness.
VO2 max is the measurement of the maximum amount of oxygen that an individual can utilize during intense, or maximal exercise.
It is measured as milliliters of oxygen used in one minute per kilogram of body weight (ml/kg/min).
It is one factor that may help determine an athlete's capacity to perform sustained exercise.
Most elite athletes will have VO2 max values well over 60ml/kg/min, this number alone is not a guarantee of elite performance.
A high VO2 max may indicate an athlete's potential for excellent aerobic endurance, but many other factors can determine the winner of a particular race.
Some of these factors for athletic success include skills training, psychological preparation, lactate threshold training, rest and recovery, and nutrition.
