Calculate your VO2max based on 5 minutes of power output

Blog

Maximum oxygen uptake (VO2Max) is reached just above your threshold or FTP. Not surprisingly, then, maximum 5-minute power output is highly correlated with your VO2Max. With a simple formula, you can therefore convert your 5-minute value into an estimate to VO2Max. Below you can use this calculator to do this for your own maximum 5 minute power value.

We explain here how accurate these methodes are.
