what does a 5.7 met score mean?
1711789 tn?1361311607
Hi there!

MET stands for metabolic equivalent (METs) and scortes are used to express the functional capacity of an individual. One MET equals the oxygen consumption of a 70-kg, 40-year-old man in a resting state. While scores above 7 are considered excellent, scores between 4-7 are moderate and those below 4 are considered poor.
Hope this information is helpful.

Take care!
