The numerator of the equation, which is expressed in ml of O2 consumed, can be manipulated to calculate how much fitness someone would need to gain to attain a particular VO2 max score. The denominator, which is expressed in kg, can be manipulated to calculate howmuch weight would need to be lost to attain a specific VO2max score. For example, say you have a 165 lb. (75 kg) female who currently runs the mile in 7 minutes and 45 seconds but whose goal is to run a mile in 7 minutes. Assuming her current fitness level (numerator) remained the same, we could manipulate the VO2max formula to determine what her body weight (denominator) would need to be in order to achieve a VO2max score of 41 (which equates to a 7:00 1.0mile run time). ??? ml O2 75 kg = 36 ml O2 / kg → 36 ml O2 / kg x 75 kg = 2,700 ml O2 2,700 ml O2 ??? kg = 41 ml O2 / kg → 2,700 ml O2 ÷ 41 ml O2 / kg = 65.8 kg 75 kg - 65.8 kg = 9.2 kg → 9.2 kg x 2.2 lbs. / kg = 20.2 lbs. → 165 lbs. - 20.2 lbs. = 144.8 lbs.
