#### Formula:

VO2 max (Men) = 14.8 - (1.379 x T) + (0.451 x T^{2}) - (0.012 x T^{3})

VO2 max (Women) = (4.38 x T) - 3.9
**Where,**
**T** = Total Running Time in Minutes.
### Example:

Bruce Protocol Treadmill stress Test VO2 Max Calculation. Total Running Time of a Female is 45 minutes.

#### Solution:

VO2 max (Women) = (4.38 x T) - 3.9

= (4.38 x 45) -3.9

= 193.2 ml/kg/min
