Endurance tests

UKK 2 km walking test

The test tells what the endurance fitness of the person being tested is, in relation to health and performance capacity. During the test, the person walks briskly for two kilometres. The fitness evaluation is based on the walking time, the heart rate at the end of the test and the background factors of the person (gender, weight/height, age). The test is suitable for exercisers of all levels.

Indirect bicycle ergometer test – RECOMMENDED!

The test determines the personal heartbeat levels of endurance exercise, as well as the aerobic and anaerobic threshold. The test is done on a bicycle and usually takes a maximum of 15 minutes. During the test, the resistance is increased step by step. During pedalling, the heart rate is monitored and the subject is asked about the strain they are experiencing. The test is suitable for all levels of exercisers, regardless of age and fitness level. The test also does not demand maximal efforts.

Direct oxygen intake test on a treadmill or with a bicycle ergometer

In the test, the precise values for the aerobic and anaerobic threshold are determined, as well as the maximal oxygen intake capacity and the heart rate-lactic acid levels that correspond to these. During the test, the test subject does the test on a treadmill or with a bicycle ergometer. The level of difficulty is increased until exhaustion point. Changes in the breathing and breath gases of the subject are monitored during the test performance with a breath gas analyser. After each increase in the level of difficulty, a blood sample is taken from the tip of the finger, from which the lactate, i.e. lactic acid, content is analysed. The heart rate during the test is stored in the instrumentation, where heart rate limits are defined for the subject on the basis of the stored data and lactate values.

The test also includes InBody measurement. Please note that the test is not suitable for beginners.
