Effect of individual time to peak power output on the expression of peak power output in the 30-s Wingate Anaerobic Test
International Journal of Sports Medicine
MetadataShow full item record
In the 30s Wingate Anaerobic Test individual power output values are obtained longitudinally, the largest value being used to represent peak power output (PPO) irrespective of the time at which it occurs. Despite this, the mean PPO value of a group of subjects is calculated cross-sectionally. This procedure is inappropriate. To correct this weakness individual power values should be aligned according to PPO, and power values expressed, not to real time, but to time from PPO. This method will provide a more accurate measure of mean PPO, and a more realistic configuration of the mean PPO curve.

The effects of varying squat technique and intensity levels on the power output within Rugby Union players. Pool, James (Cardiff Metropolitan University, 2013)The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of contraction type and movement type on optimal power production of the lower body musculature and identify the load that maximises power output within a squat. ...
