What’s the big deal about VO2 Max

Research shows that the less fit an individual is, the more they can increase their VO2 Max through training. In fact, novice exercisers have been able to increase VO2 Max by 20 percent through proper training. Fit athletes have a harder time increasing their VO2 Max, most likely because they are already so near their genetic potential. Absolute values of VO2 Max are typically 40-60% higher in men than in women.
