The aim of the present study was to compare males and females with similar training backgrounds regarding the relationship between anaerobic performance and muscle characteristics and to test whether any of the analysed expressions of muscle characteristics could predict some of the difference in anaerobic performance between sexes. Subjects performed 30 s all-out sprints on a bicycle ergometer (Wingate test) and needle muscle biopsies were taken at rest. Peak and mean power were respectively… CONTINUE READING
