VO2max // The size of the engine

Updated: May 18, 2023

From swimming sprints to 90-minute football matches, the maximum aerobic capacity (VO2max) is the single most important performance metric that needs to be looked at.


As often misunderstood, VO2max is not restricted by only raw physical talent, but it can be trained to unknown maximums.


VO2max is also a metric that responds quickly to training, so it needs to be monitored regularly.

When you start a training program with GD Triathlon Coaching, we will test your VO2max and we will create a coaching plan tailored to increase it.


Through our performance software we also be able to:

  • Compare the effect of high-intensity trainings and endurance workouts on VO2max.

  • Evaluate the impact of specialized nutrition regimes to further increase VO2max.

  • Understand the impact of VO2max on fat oxidation and carbohydrate combustion.
