peak VO2 [ Time Frame: end of the exercise test, approx.10 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
peak Vo2 is the maximal oxygen consumption obtained during the exercise test, reflecting the level of aerobic fintess

Music Pacing in Pediatric Exercise Testing
Music Pacing in Pediatric Exercise Testing

Study hypothesis: Music pacing improves the quality of exercise testing in children.

Children tend to cycle in a non-constant pace during exercise testing, which might make the test less reliable.

20 boys will perform two exercise tests on a cycle ergometer. One test will be done with constant tempoed music, and the other without. Different parameters will be checked including pedaling cadence, aerobic fitness, level of work load obtained.
