The 30-year-old Wingate anaerobic test (WAnT) has proven a useful and a much-needed tool in the exercise physiology lab. However, the WAnT suffers from difficulties that partially stem from its original design but are mainly due to a large array of highly non-standardized procedures and the use of different testing modalities—mainly mechanically versus electro-magnetically braked ergometers. The present communication reviews and analyzes the deviations from WAnT’s optimal use and proposes… CONTINUE READING
