1.    As a group, we conducted the Wingate Test on four of
our five members. Alyssa Martin did not participate in the test due to a knee
injury. We will show all the work for Joel Van Dyk, and the results for the
other three participants.

a.    Joel Van Dyk (10,8,7,9,8,7) 82 kg=6.1 kg     5 seconds=0.0833 minutes

Anaerobic Power

Anaerobic energy comes into play during
the first part of a workout or activity. This energy system works during the
first thirty seconds of exercise, and provides optimal power for the body. For
example, short distance sprinters would use strictly anaerobic power to run 100
metres and power lifters use anaerobic energy to lift. The body uses the ATP-PC
for its energy, as well as carbohydrates for its source of fuel. Type ll muscle
fibers work best during the anaerobic phase of exercise because that is when
the body can generate the most power. The Wingate test proves this as the
participant’s numbers always go down throughout the test, and the highest
numbers are always at the very beginning.


Aerobic energy kicks in after the first
thirty seconds of exerted activity. This energy system uses oxygen much more so
than anaerobic energy, because the working muscles in the body must maintain
their activity for longer. Long distance runners, for example, need strong
aerobic energy systems to maintain good pace during a race. VO2 max is involved
with aerobic energy because it is the maximum amount of oxygen the body can use
during exercise. Type l and la fibers are more involved with aerobic exercise
because it involves endurance, and does not require muscles to be twitching and
firing as fast as they do during anaerobic power movements. Other types of aerobic
activities might be cycling, swimming and really anything that involves endurance.


3.    Anaerobic power is the most outrageous
measure of vitality that can be created by the anaerobic energy framework per
unit time. Anaerobic power reflects the limit of the adenosine triphosphate and
phosphocreatine (ATP-PCR) vitality pathways to make vitality for muscle
withdrawal. This framework is depleted quickly and is used for short impacts of
genuine power yield.

The anaerobic limit is the aggregate total of energy from the anaerobic
(without oxygen) energy structures, that is the solidified measure of yield for
the ATP, phospho-creatine, and lactic corrosive framework

The rate of the depletion addresses the decline in the power in association
with the peak value. Anaerobic weakness happens because of the storing up of
the lactate into the muscle tissue. It can be measured with the help of the
exhaustion record. For instance, the pinnacle control in the Wingate test is
the most vital dynamic power finished in the 30-second trial which was 955.7W


Yes, the Wingate Test is an accurate and valid measurement of
anaerobic power. This energy system is used to fuel the muscles to perform at a
high-intensity level for a short amount of time. The ATP/PCr energy pathway is
the main system involved in mid-range to high-intensity exercise (10-120
seconds). To determine the reliability of the test, the Wingate was compared to
several lab findings, sport specialty, and sport performances since there is no
“gold standard” protocol to measure anaerobic capacity to verify the test’s
validity. The Wingate Test increases from mid-range to high-intensity
resistance in 30 seconds. The ATP/PCr energy system produces energy for muscle
contraction, which is demonstrated through anaerobic power, or in this case,
the Wingate Test. This test also demonstrates anaerobic peak power which is
represented by the highest power generated at a 5 second interval, which was
calculated by counting the amount of times each person pedaled during those


5.    VO2 max is not fully
obtained in the Wingate Test so it is not for sure that a person with a
superior VO2 max would do better than the average person. A
VO2 max is the highest point you can go and then constantly stay at that same
level. With the Wingate Test, a person cannot stay at the same speed and
resistance that is put on during the Wingate Test for very long. The Wingate
Test is to test anaerobic capacity and power. It demands short duration and
maximal effort. The Wingate Test will use different forms of energy compared to
a normal VO2 max test.
