Warm-up is generally considered beneficial for performance, although the reduction in anaerobic glycolytic metabolism may be detrimental to sprinting. This study examined the effect of warm-up intensity on metabolism and performance in sprint cycling. The mean power was determined during a 1-min sprint on 11 trained males preceded by easy (WE), moderate (WM) or hard (WH) warm-up and a 10-min recovery. Aerobic, anaerobic glycolytic and phosphocreatine energy provision to the sprint was… CONTINUE READING
