Metabolic Madness

Secondary ProgramsOnsite & Outreach

This program utilises the latest in performance diagnostics equipment to compare an indirect fitness assessment (multi-stage beep test) to a direct fitness assessment VO2 max.

This experience utilises latest in research grade technology, the Cortex Metamax 3B to perform a VO2 Max test for a nominated student. This allows for the precise measurement and live data recording of the following markers; oxygen consumption, carbon dioxide production, ventilation, heart rate, breath rate and fuel utilisation (fats and carbohydrates).

All students collect their own blood pressure, vital capacity, heart rate and core temperature for analysis.
