Before and 3 days after the training intervention, participants performed a 30 s anaerobic Wingate test
followed by short repeated bursts of maximal cycling (5x6 s with 20 s recovery).
Twelve prepubertal boys, 12 untrained men, and 13 male endurance athletes completed an incremental test to determine the power output at maximum oxygen uptake (PVO2max) and a Wingate test
to assess maximal anaerobic power (Pmax) and relative decrease in power output (the fatigue index [FI]).
Cardiovascular measures, anthropometric measures, maximal muscular and anaerobic power using a Wingate test
, functional exercise capacity using the 6-min walk test, muscular strength, power, and fatigue using the BIODEX, and QOL using multiple questionnaires were tested during the pre and post visits.
Eight weeks of training caused no changes in response to the Wingate Test
, with the exception of the IL6/IL10 ratio.
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).
Effect of time of day on aerobic contribution to the 30-s Wingate test
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).
During the trials, heart rate was recorded every minute (at 45 seconds during the steady state and immediately after each 10-second Wingate test
