Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare continuous and discontinuous treadmill protocols for the elicitation of maximum oxygen uptake in 8, 9, and 10 year old females. The research hypotheses tested were: 1. The maximum oxygen uptake of prepubescent females in liters per minute measured during a continuous treadmill protocol is not different from those values obtained from a discontinuous treadmill protocol. 2. The maximum oxygen uptake of prepubescent females in milliliters per kilograms per minute measured during a continuous treadmill protocol is not different from those values measured during a discontinuous treadmill protocol. 3. The respiratory exchange ratio of prepubescent females at vo2max measured during a continuous treadmill protocol is not different from those values measured during a discontinuous treadmill protocol. 4. The volume expired of prepubescent females at vo2max measured during a continuous treadmill protocol is not different from those values measured during a discontinuous treadmill protocol.
