LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in English; abstract also in Chinese.
Cardiorespiratory (CR) fitness is an important component of the health-related physical fitness. CR fitness is related to oxygen delivery to muscles involving heart, lungs and circulatory system that enabling large muscles to work for a longer period of time. The most accurate reflection of CR fitness is maximal oxygen uptake (V02 max) at work. However, the test involves expensive laboratory equipment such as treadmill, cycle ergometer and gas analyzer. Field tests such as distance running tests and step tests are more appropriate to be used during physical education lesson. This article aims to introduce a few field tests for CR fitness to be used in schools.
