Abstract

Abstract: The level of physical fitness is a body health parameter. It can be measured by several methods. The 12-minutes Cooper running test and ergocycle Astrand test for VO2max calculation are the most common in Indonesia. The aim of this study was to compare the cardiorespiratory physical fitness level between the 12-minutes Cooper running test and the ergocycle Astrand test. The subject of this study consisted of 20 male students of the Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Airlangga, aged between 19 and 22 years old with normal to overweight body mass index (BMI). Based on the ergocycle Astrand test, 25% of students showed very good category, 20% of students good, 20% of students moderate, and 35% of students poor. The average of VO2max was 41.01% mlO2/kgweight/minute. The 12-minutes Cooper running test revealed that 5% of students showed good category, 15% of students moderate, 25% of students poor, and 55% of students very poor. The average of VO2max was 32.34 mlO2/kgweight/minute. The 12-minutes Cooper running and ergocycle Astrand test on VO2max had a significant difference (p=0.002). The selection of measurement type and the result of physical fitness level should be considered further because they may have significant difference, e.g. the ergocycle Astrand test is a non-weight-bearing test and the 12-minutes Cooper running test is a weight-bearing test.
