# Beep Test Calculator

Here is a calculator for converting your beep test results to a VO_{2max} score. There are quite a few formula available for making this conversion, this is just one example.

Enter your details, the level (stage) and the number of shuttles, and it will calculate the **total distance** run in meters (from the data table), **estimated VO _{2max}** (using the formula of

*Léger*et al. (1988) (see Scoring the beep test) and a

**fitness rating**based on your sex (from the beep test rating table).

## Your Results

VO_{2max}: ** ml/kg/min**

Distance Run: ** meters**

Rating: ** **

### Formula used for this Calculator

The last stage number is used to predict maximal oxygen uptake ( VO_{2max} , *ml.kg ^{-1}.min^{-1}*) from the speed (X, km.hr

^{-1}) corresponding to that stage (speed = 8 + 0.5 x stage no.) and age (A, years):

* VO _{2max} (ml.kg^{-1}.min^{-1}) = 31.025 + 3.238X - 3.248A + 0.1536AX*

This formula is suitable for boys and girls aged 8-19 years. For adults, similar measurements indicated that the same equation could be used keeping age constant at 18.

### Here's another one, based only on the final running speed

- VO
_{2max}= (peak running speed * 6.65 - 35.8) * 0.95 + 0.182
