Abstract

We compared the optimal workload of Wingate test (WAnT), which was assigned according to total body mass (TBM), between two groups of eight young male adults. The leg anaerobic power and fat free mass of these two groups were comparable while their percent body fat was either within (NOR) or above normal range (OF). The optimal WAnT workload was derived individually from the polynomial regression of power-workload against of 75, 100, 110, 125 and 140 g.kg-1 TBM. It was found that the maximum power elicited from the various workloads in the WAnT was not different (P>0.05) between NOR and OF groups. Further, there was no difference in the optimal workload between the two groups (NOR: 120.7 ±13.6; OF: 114.0 ±7.2 g.kg-1 TBM, P>0.05). The findings suggest that the counting of fat mass in workload assignment in the WAnT may not affect the maximum power output in minor overfat adults.
