My colleagues and I recently read the study by Sanada et al. (2007) on the development of prediction models for maximal oxygen uptake (\ifmmode\expandafter\else˙\expandafter\.\fiVO2max). We would like to focus our comments on two particular areas of the study: (1) the use of stepwise regression, and (2) the practical application of the prediction equations.
