Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between the athlete classification and their anaerobic capacities and post-exercise blood lactate concentrations after performing Wingate testing. The question to be answered was “Do differences in anaerobic capacities and blood lactate concentrations exist between division one and recreational athletes?” A total of 24 undergraduate athletes, 12 male and 12 female, took part in the study. Participants performed a Wingate Anaerobic Test (WAnT) with a torque factor of 0.085 of their body weight. Blood lactate levels were determined post WAnT with a blood lactate pro analyzer. Data was recorded using RacerMate Velotron software. Data analysis continues. Conclusions have yet to been drawn.
