Hello Hans and Ron,
Thank you for the book! I’m enjoying reading it. I’m not following a following in Chap 20 where you relate FTP and Vo2max. Vo2max is expressed in ml/kg/min and DeltaG in KJ/L of O2, it seems than when doing the conversion, we should end up with Vo2max in L/kg/Min vs. ml/kg/min? could you help me there? thx L
Thanks for the question and we are happy that you enjoy reading our book.
The answer is that delta G is indeed expressed in kJ/LO2 which is equivalent to J/mLO2.
So you can convert the VO2 max in mlO2/kg/min to 0.25*19.55J/kg/min.
As 1 Watt is 1 J/s, you also have to divide by 60 (seconds in 1 minute) to come to Watt/kg which is the unit of the FTP.
