Wingate test

Win·gate test

(win'gāt test)
Test of maximal anaerobic power output during 30 seconds of all-out exercise on either arm-crank or leg-cycle ergometer; a measure of maximal power output and capacity of immediate (ATP-PCRATP and PCr) and short-term (glycolytic) energy systems.
[Test developed at Wingate Institute, Israel.]

Wingate test

test of anaerobic power production, originating in the Wingate Institute, Israel, in 1974. Consists of flat-out pedalling on a cycle ergometer for 30 s against a resistance chosen to suit the subject's body weight (BW), sex and fitness, and the design of the ergometer, e.g. 7.5% BW for a normally healthy young adult male on the widely used Monark ergometer. Both peak power output and the extent to which output is maintained over the 30 s are usually reported.

During the screening session, abdominal circumference and BMI were assessed, and a Wingate test was performed to determine mean power (MP).
This was used to set the seat height and allow the subjects to become familiar with the Wingate test intensity (39).
Peak power and peak velocity were determined during BP at 30% 1RM and vertical jump tests as well as a 30s Wingate test, which also provided relative power (watt:mass).
There is a great number of tests that can be used to evaluate anaerobic abilities; among them is the Wingate Test, a valid and highly reproducible tool, which is easy to be administered.
Anaerobic power performance as measured by Wingate test was used to represent anaerobic peak power, anaerobic peak power/kg, anaerobic mean power, and anaerobic mean power/kg.
It has been demonstrated that anaerobic exercise, such as 30-second supramaximal Wingate test (WT), strongly stimulates both the adenosine triphosphate-phosphocreatine and glycolytic systems (7), and thus activates purine catabolism and lactic acid production (8).
First up is a Peak Power test, followed by a Wingate test and finally the feared Ramp test, which lasts 15 to 20 minutes and sees resistance increased across that time, ahead of a power and stamina sprint.
The fighter performed two stress tests in each study series: the Wingate Test for upper limbs (peak power of the upper limbs) and the graded test until volitional exhaustion (measurement of maximal minute oxygen consumption and appointment of the second ventilatory threshold).
In that group, there was a statistically significant increase in sprint capacity, which was calculated using a 30-second cycle Wingate test for anaerobic sprint capacity that measured total work and peak power.
Examples of upper body and lower body tests include the vertical jump, 300-yard shuttle run, 16 x 110-yard dash or 8 x 55-yard dash under set times by position, medicine-ball put, seated shot put, Wingate test, and basketball line drill.
1995) Aerobic and anaerobic contribution to wingate test performance in sprint and middle distance runners.
Thus, the effects of short anaerobic power exercise, such as the Wingate Test on post-exercise blood pressure remains unclear.
