The purpose of this study was to establish whether critical power, as traditionally determined from the performance of three constant-load tests to exhaustion, is attained at the end of a 90-s all-out test in children. Sixteen healthy children (eight males and eight females; mean age 12.3 years, s(x) = 0.1; body mass 39.6 kg, s(x) = 1.8; peak VO(2) 2.0 litres . min(-1), s(x) = 0.1) completed an incremental test to exhaustion to determine peak oxygen uptake (peak VO(2)), three separate constant… CONTINUE READING
