# Your Fitness Age

#1

Probably not applicable to lifters, but for giggles:

I'm 37.. wtf?

#2

Your VO2MAX is calculated to be
67
and your estimated “fitness age” is
younger than 20

That is probably because I am strong pound for pound, and actually get some conditioning in.

#3

Your VO2MAX is calculated to be

59

and your estimated “fitness age” is

younger than 20

#4

I’m… “younger than 20”.

Male, 29, lift 5x a week for 30+ minutes, some hard breathing and sweating, 30" waist, 55 bpm resting pulse.

#5

Though I think the resting heart rate I put in that is off, seeing as how I’ve been doing push-ups and chin-ups steadily throughout the day today.

Last time I checked actual resting heart rate, it was 60. Which would put the VO2MAX at 62.

#6

Vo2 max of 55 and fitness age of 21. Actual age is 37. Doesn’t seem right I know when I was 21 my pulse frequently reached 200 during water polo practice now when it’s over 180 I feel awful.

Did you enter the waist measurements in cm? It has a conversion calculator at the top.

Well, it helps that you’re also younger than 20.

Where does your “I am strong pound for pound” come into play with that calculator?

Yeah, I put it in in cm. I just converted back (er, didn’t convert) for here.

Maximal heart rate decreases with age, nothing you can do about it. Doesn’t mean anything as far as “fitness”

#12

65 O.o

and your estimated “fitness age” is

younger than 20.
