Bottom Line: The results revealed significant correlations between the number of shuttles in the 20mMSFT and directly determined VO2max (r = 0.87, p<0.05) and vVO2max (r = 0.93, p<0.05).It can be concluded that the 20mMSFT can accurately predict VO2max and vVO2max and this field test can provide useful information regarding aerobic fitness of adults.The predicted vVO2max can be used in monitoring athletes, especially in determining optimal training intensity.

ABSTRACT
The multi-stage 20-m shuttle run fitness test (20mMSFT) is a popular field test which is widely used to measure aerobic fitness by predicting maximum oxygen uptake (VO2max) and performance. However, the velocity at which VO2max occurs (vVO2max) is a better indicator of performance than VO2max, and can be used to explain inter-individual differences in performance that VO2max cannot. It has been reported as a better predictor for running performance and it can be used to monitor athletes' training for predicting optimal training intensity. This study investigated the validity and suitability of predicting VO2max and vVO2max of adult subjects on the basis of the performance of the 20mMST. Forty eight (25 male and 23 female) physical education students performed, in random order, a laboratory based continuous horizontal treadmill test to determine VO2max, vVO2max and a 20mMST, with an interval of 3 days between each test. The results revealed significant correlations between the number of shuttles in the 20mMSFT and directly determined VO2max (r = 0.87, p<0.05) and vVO2max (r = 0.93, p<0.05). The equation for prediction of VO2max was y = 0.0276x + 27.504, whereas for vVO2max it was y = 0.0937x + 6.890. It can be concluded that the 20mMSFT can accurately predict VO2max and vVO2max and this field test can provide useful information regarding aerobic fitness of adults. The predicted vVO2max can be used in monitoring athletes, especially in determining optimal training intensity.

Mentions: The analysis of the data revealed statistically significant correlations between the number of shuttles in the 20mMSFT and treadmill VO2max (r = 0.87, p<0.05; Figure 1) as well as vVO2max (r = 0.93, p<0.05; Figure 2). Additionally, there were no significant differences between the measured and predicted values of VO2max (49.98 ± 8.33 and 49.97 ± 7.17 ml·kg−1·min−1), vVO2max (14.52 ± 2.65 and 14.51 ± 2.43 km·h−1), HRVO2max (194.1 ± 10.03 and 195.2 ± 7.50 beats·min−1) and LacuteVO2max (12.05 ± 1.96 and 12.09 ± 1.90 mmol·L−1). The equation for prediction of VO2max was y = 0.0276x + 27.504, whereas for the vVO2max it was y = 0.0937x + 6.890.
