Wingate Results??JBergland
Jan 9, 2002 1:00 PM
I recently completed a Wingate Power Test and I'm looking for resources to compare some of my numbers to. Any sources on the web or first hand knowledge from others??

Peak Power 1146 watts
Mean (average) Power 675 watts
Minimum Power 426 watts
Peak Power in 4.8 sec.
Fatigue Index 28.6 watts per sec.

Thanks!!

JB,

I assume this was a 30 sec. test. I don't have any tables with me, but from what I remember from
the little bit of lab work and testing we did when I took ex. phys. your results are pretty fair. If I remember
correctly, guys like Marty Nothstein achieve peak power levels of 1800 to 2000 watts. Cat 1/2
sprinters will generate numbers similar to your own, and up to 1500 watts.

to get a good understanding of the test, your results and comparisons to others:
the best book i know of is: the wingate anaerobic test.the publisher is: human kinetics publishers-- the book was written by the developers of the test--
the best journal article i know of is in the 1998 canadian journal of appl. physiol 23(4)--
there are a few good things in canada *S*
..i have a bookmark that gives an explanation of the results for a number of tests-- the wingate being one:
