What is VO2Max?


Oxygen increases your performance abilities. No matter the sport or activity, more oxygen gives you a distinct advantage. Verve Performance Labs products offer people the opportunity to increase oxygen intake, improving their human performance levels when training, performing and recovering.

Every breath you take converts to energy. Human cells use nutrients from nutrition and oxygen to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This energy source fuels your cells function. If your cells receive less oxygen, they produce less energy. If your cells need more energy, they use more oxygen. That’s why your breathing rate increases when you exercise, you need more oxygen.

VO2 max, also known as maximal oxygen uptake, is the measurement of the maximum amount of oxygen a person can utilize during intense exercise. It is a common measurement used to establish the aerobic endurance of an athlete prior to or during the course of training. It is one of several tests used to determine an athlete’s cardiovascular fitness and performance capacity.

VO2 max is measured in milliliters of oxygen used in one minute per kilogram of body weight (mL/kg/min). It is based on the premise that the more oxygen an athlete consumes during high-level exercise, the more the body will generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP) energy in cells.
