The research question posed is, how does relative VO2 of males or females compare to each other? Research has shown that males will have an overall higher VO2 than females. Also, trained individuals will have a higher VO2 than those who are untrained. The purpose of this study is conduct VO2 max tests on trained and untrained males and female to observe the differences in VO2. If the subject is a male, then the VO2 will be higher than the females regardless of training.
