    VO2 max calculation with HRM?

    Anyone know how to estimate VO2 max using heart rate monitor and cycle computer data?

    Some Polar HRMs have feature to do this. Not during training period, but you are just laying at home and it takes about 5 minutes. I have no idea how it works (in my mind it can't work if it doesn't measure air you breath in and out), but it actually works and it's pretty accurate (maybe 1-2% difference compared to real lab VO2max test).
