Performance in many sports is dependent upon anaerobic power and capacity, which is commonly assessed by the Wingate Anaerobic Test (WAnT), and there is a lack of normative data for male power athletes. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to develop percentile norm tables for the WAnT using Division 1A male athletes for peak power (PP), mean power (MP), and fatigue index (FI).
Seventy eight athletes (20 Â± 1.72 yrs; 184.2 Â± 6.7 cm; 84.4 Â± 9.5 kg) participating in football (n = 52), track and field (n = 25), and basketball (n = 1) volunteered to perform a 30 s WAnT against a resistance of 0.085 kp/kg body mass (BM).
Percentile Norms in W/kg BM for PP, MP, and in percent decline for FI for the WAnT are shown in the table below.
As anticipated, the normative data for PP and MP developed in this project were higher than previously developed norm tables for non-athletes. The WAnT is a useful anaerobic power test for evaluating power athletes and these data make for better comparisons in testing these types of athletes.
