Differences in Anaerobic Capacities and Blood Lactate Levels in Elite and Recreational Athletes as Measured by Wingate Testing
Arts and Sciences
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.
