VO2/Aerobic Capacity

VO2Max – the boldy’s ability to consume oxygen for energy production – best indicator for aerobic capacity.  The body cannot operate at VO2Max levels of intesity for extended periods of time. But it is poosible to operate at intensities higher than VO2Max. If you are operating at intensities that are higher than VO2Max then it means that your body is using energy that is produce anerobically (or without oxygen) to do so.
