ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of different workloads on anaerobic power and anaerobic capacity in trained children. Wingate tests were performed on a Monark cycle ergometer by using loads of 60, 70, 80 g.kg-1 for body mass on 47 young (21 boys, 26 girls) basketball players (age: 13.44±0.54 years, weight: 59.66±11.98 kg, height: 166.81±11.16 cm). All subjects had been training regularly for at least 1.5 year. Subjects were randomly divided into 3 groups and the three test loads were applied randomly to each group for three test sessions. The results indicate that both absolute and relative anaerobic power and capacity values were higher at 80 g.kg-1 test load compared to the values at other test loads (60 and 70 g.kg-1) in both gender groups. As a conclusion, although the issue of choosing optimal load setting that would elicit the highest possible anaerobic performance values for different populations is not fully resolved, using the loads of at least 80 g per kg body mass would be more appropriate in 13–14 years old trained children.
