The subject should have a warm up to get the blood running to the muscle. As the test goes on the intensity of the work should go up to get Vo2 max.  Oxygen consumption should increase linearly with increasing work rate and approaches a plateau. Heart rate should be close to the age-predicted maximum. Blood lactate level should be 8 millimole/liter up. Respiratory exchange ratio (VCO2/VO2)should be greater than 1.10. Does the subject look exhausted.  Mode of exercise, the VO2 max should test the primary movement of the sport for example rower should be test while rowing. Heredity, most of the people VO2 ability is from their parents around 40-50%. Age and Sex as people get older their
