Abstract : The relative pulse-working-capacity 170 PWC(170 rel) is thought to represent the maximum workload which a person can achieve with constant oxygen-uptake. The general mean of about 3 Watt/kg body weight depends on gender and fitness and to a low degree on age. With allowing all kinds of military tasks for women in the german forces it is likely that only women out of the upper regions of the standard deviation of that special group will be chosen for demanding military tasks. Under the condition of steady state the highest workload with a constant oxygen-uptake is called working capacity.
