VO2 max. defined

Measuring oxygen consumption: an indication of a person's capacity to
work aerobically.

VO2 max. is the maximum volume of oxygen consumed by the body each minute
during exercise while breathing air at sea level. Because oxygen
consumption is linearly related to energy expenditure, when we measure
oxygen consumption we are indirectly measuring an individual's maximal
capacity to do work aerobically.
