Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate how the peak power, mean power, minimum power, time to peak power and lactate are affected by the method of starting the test. Ten healthy male athletes (Median age = 25) were tested on two different days, where each participant had a minimum of 48 hours between the two test sessions. The tests consisted of a 30-second Wingate test with flying start and a start from 40 revolutions per minute (RPM). All tests were performed on a Monark - Ergomedic 894E Peak Bike (Varberg, Sweden). Results revealed that peak power and mean power was significantly higher (p < 0.05) with a start from 40 RPM (1194W and 660W) vs. the flying start (965W and 624W). There was no significant difference on minimum power, time to peak power and lactate. The conclusion from this study is that a Wingate test starting at 40 RPM can provide a higher peak power and mean power, compared to a Wingate test with flying start performed by male athletes. Few studies have explored this subject, so future studies should investigate if this method (40 RPM) is suitable for other groups (e.g. selected by activity, age and/or gender).
