Seven high school boys (16.4 +/- 0.5 y, mean +/- SD) and 7 girls (16.4 +/- 0.5 y), who specialized in track and field events, performed ten 5-s maximal sprint runs with an interval of 10s between each sprint on a non-motorized running ergometer. In each sprint, the mean mechanical power (MP) from the start until the belt velocity of the ergometer (i. e., running velocity) peaked was calculated. The boys showed significantly higher MP than the girls in all sprints. However, when MP was expressed… Expand
Effects of age and mode of exercise on power output profiles during repeated sprints
To conclude, adults displayed a greater decrement in power output compared to children over the ten repeated running and cycling sprints and children and adults experienced greater fatigue during running compared to cycling. Expand

It is suggested that the sex difference in fatigue during repeated bouts of sprint exercise is not likely to be explained by a difference in muscle contractility impairment in men and women, but may be due to a sex differenceIn muscle recruitment strategy. Expand
Squat Jump Performance During Growth in Both Sexes
Investigation of leg muscle power and comparing two activities (jumping and cycling) in 383 girls and 407 boys ages 9–19 years found squat jump index (SJI) was highly correlated to cycling peak power (CPP), but cycling and jumping protocols are not interchangeable when measuring peak power values.

Fatigue resistance during high-intensity intermittent exercise from childhood to adulthood in males and females
The maturation profile of FR in males and females during development appears to reflect the maturation profiles of peak torque, short-term muscle power, and lactate concentration after exercise. Expand
Effects of body mass-based squat training in adolescent boys.
It is indicated that body mass-based squat training for 8 weeks is a feasible and effective method for improving body composition and muscular strength of the knee extensors, and jump performance in adolescent boys. Expand
Mechanical work accounts for sex differences in fatigue during repeated sprints
It is concluded that, on the basis of the absolute mechanical work completed, women are not more fatigue resistant than men and use comparable muscle recruitment strategies to perform RSE, rather than a sex difference in fatigue resistance per se. Expand
Age- and sex-associated differences in isokinetic knee muscle endurance between young children and adults.
It is concluded that females do not resist fatigue from repeated isokinetic muscle actions to a greater extent than males, and that the greater fatigue in adults than in children is probably a product of greater initial torque production and work performed. Expand
It is shown that O2 availability influences oxygenation of the prefrontal cortex during repeated, short sprints and, unlike muscle, oxygenation imposes a limitation to repeated-sprint ability. Expand
Tissue oxygenation in men and women during repeated-sprint exercise.
Results indicate that men and women matched for initial-sprints work experience similar levels of fatigue and systemic, cerebral, and peripheral adjustments during RSE performed in NM and HY, and suggest that cerebral deoxygenation imposes a limitation to repeated-sprint performance. Expand
Performance indices of two different repeated sprint tests protocols in overweight children
We determined the relationship between aerobic fitness and a short and long repeated sprint test (RST) in pre pubertal overweight children (10.5±1.5 yrs). Aerobic fitness was evaluated by the 20mExpand
