Polar tests - Which one is for me?

If you're a pro athlete, knowing your VO2max as precisely as possible is important. If you enjoy leisurely bike rides on Sunday mornings occasionally and go to the gym every now and then, there's probably no point in taking a lab test or an all-out field test.

To make sure that your results are as reliable as possible, you need to perform the test in similar conditions every time.

For a performance test (running, cycling), you should prepare as if it was a competition. Fully recovered.

In addition to aerobic fitness tests, which measure your performance, you can use the Orthostatic test or the Leg recovery test to see how you have recovered from training.
