El objetivo de este estudio fue determinar si existen diferencias en los valores de VO2max indirecto obtenido con cinco pruebas físicas: UTMM, VAM-EVAL, Ida-Vuelta, 1000 m y Ramsbottom. Los sujetos fueron hombres mexicanos en edad universitaria sin entrenamiento previo y sin experiencia en deportes, con los siguientes parámetros: edad 19,33 ± 1,09 años (media ± 1 desviación estándar), peso 68,47 ± 9,93 kg, estatura 1,71 ± 0,06 m e IMC 23,62 ± 2,82. El VO2max indirecto (ml/kg/min, media ± 1 error estándar) por prueba fue de: 44,26 ± 3,74 para UMTT, 44,14 ± 3,01 para VAM-EVAL, 42,78 ± 2,80 para Ida y vuelta, 44,92 ± 2,33 para 1000 m y 42,67 ± 2,96 para Ramsbotton. No se encontraron diferencias significativas entre el VO2max indirecto obtenido por los sujetos de estudio en las cinco pruebas. Concluimos que las cinco pruebas son equivalentes y pueden ser usadas indistintamente para evaluar el VO2max indirecto.

PALABRAS CLAVES: Jóvenes universitarios, VO2max, UMTT, VAM-EVAL, Ida-Vuelta, 1000 m y Ramsbottom.



The objetive of this study was determining if there are differences in the measurement of indirect VO2max among five different physical tests: UMTT, VAM-EVAL, 20 MST, 1000 m and Ramsbottom. The subjects were Mexican college-age men without previous training and without sport experience with the following parameters: years 19,33±1,09 (mean ± 1 standard deviation), weight 68,47 ± 9,93 kg, height 1,71 ± 0,06 m and body mass index 23,62 ± 2,82. VO2max indirect (ml/kg/min, average ± 1 standard error) by test were: 44,26 ± 3,74 for UMTT, 44,14 ± 3,01 for VAM-EVAL, 42,78 ± 2,80 for 20 MST, 44,92 ± 2,33 for 1000 m and 42,67 ± 2,96 for Ramsbotton. We do not detect significant differences between the indirect VO2max obtained in the five tests. We concluded that the five tests are equivalent and can be used interchangeably to assess the indirect VO2max.

KEY WORDS: Colleges students, VO2max, UMTT, VAM-EVAL, 20 MST, Ramsbottom.
