This is an important measure of your aerobic endurance, and can provide a deep insight into your overall level of fitness.

Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 Max)
VO2 max, or maximal oxygen uptake, is the maximum amount of oxygen that an individual can use during intense or maximal exercise. It is measured in milliliters of oxygen used per minute per kilogram of body weight. VO2 max is considered the best indicator of cardiovascular fitness and aerobic endurance. The higher the VO2 max, the more oxygen the body can consume during high-intensity workouts, and thus, the more energy can be produced.
