Traditionally physiological research has compared child-adult differences during continuous cycling or strength tests, whereas it is known that the activity pattern of the exercising child is normally intermittent running. Performance and physiological responses confirmed greater fatigue resistance of children, with mode of exercise also influencing the results. The research advanced theoretical understanding of the mechanisms that improve fatigue resistance in youths, identified important differences in responses to cycle and non-motorised treadmill sprinting, and has implication for the interpretation of previous research and future study design. Oliver contributed to experimental design, data collection and writing of the manuscript.
