Purpose of
Metabolic Calculations
   Under steady-state conditions, VO2 provides a
measure of the energy cost of exercise
   The rate of O2 uptake at maximal exercise
indicates the capacity for O2 transport and
utilization
   Peak VO2 serves as the gold standard criterion
measure of cardiorespiratory fitness
   At steady state, and in combination with CO2
output, VO2 can provide information about type
of fuel use during exercise
   Determine work rates to be used in the
development of exercise prescription
Expression of VO2
   Absolute- Liters per minute (Lmin-1)
   Used to convert consumption to a rate of energy expenditure

   Relative- mL per kg body weight per min (mLkg-1min-1)
   Used to compare VO2 among varying body sizes

   Gross oxygen consumption- Total consumption rate under
any circumstances, either in absolute or relative; describes
rest plus exercise

   Net oxygen consumption- Consumption rate above resting
oxygen uptake (approx. 3.5 mLkg-1min-1); describes
exercise
RER and RQ
   RER-Respiratory                   RQ-Respiratory
Exchange Ratio                     Quotient
   Ventilatory                       Cellular Respiration and
substrate utilization
measurement
• 0.7 = Fat
   Reflects gas exchange               • 1.0 = Carbohydrate
between lungs and                   • 0.8 = Protein
pulmonary blood
   Equivalent to RER only
   Exceeds 1.0 during                 under resting or
heavy exercise due to              steady-state conditions
buffering of lactic acid          Can never exceed 1.0
which produces CO2                RQ is used to estimate
energy expenditure,
however, when RQ is
not available, assume
5 kcal L-1
Estimation of
Energy Expenditure
   When VO2 cannot be measured directly,
state exercise (will overestimate VO2 if
   Equations are based on relating
mechanical work rate to metabolic
equivalents
   Equations are appropriate for general
clinical and lab use
Estimation of
Energy Expenditure
   Equations can be used for:
 Estimating or predicting energy
expenditure
 Designing an exercise prescription to
determine the exercise intensity
associated with a desired level of
energy expenditure
Cautionary Notes
   The inter-subject variability for VO2 may be as
high as 7%
aerobic exercise
   Any variable that changes the metabolic
efficiency results in loss of accuracy (e.g.,
orthopedic limitations, holding handrail on
   Assumes that a metabolic cart or gas analyzers
and flow indicators are calibrated and used
properly
   Despite these caveats, metabolic equations
provide a valuable tool for exercise professionals
