Victoria Newbury Lab Section Tuesday 1 00 Due 2 11 14 Kin 470 Exercise Physiology Lab instructor Ben Hoffman Lab Report 1 Anaerobic Power and the Anticipatory Response to Exertion Results Both participants showed an increase in the number of revolutions from 5 seconds to 10 seconds into the exercise After 10 seconds both participants began to decrease in the number of revolutions they produced Participant 1 s power output decreased by 50 04 and participant 2 decreased by 42 86 Peak anaerobic power relative peak anaerobic power mean anaerobic power relative mean anaerobic power and lowest peak anaerobic for each participant can be seen in table 2 Wingate results Graph 1 Revolutions per every 5 second interval for Participants 1 and 2 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 Revolutions per every 5

1 Participant 2 had lower decrease in power output throughout the Wingate test 42 86 as compared to participant 1 50 04 Participant 2 also had higher relative peak anaerobic power and relative mean anaerobic power than participant 1 Relative power means the amount of power expended per kilogram that a person weighs Participant 1 s relative peak anaerobic power was 5 4 watts kg and their relative mean anaerobic power was 4 05 watts kg Participant 2 s relative peak anaerobic power was 6 3 watts kg and their relative mean anaerobic power was 4 8 watts kg These values don t follow the same trend as the raw power values because raw power values add up the total power produced by the whole body not just per kilogram Their training statuses influenced the results because even though both were considered active both exercise at least 5x week participant 2 performed more resistance training and anaerobic activities than participant 1 Physiological adaptations to anaerobic exercise include an improved bioergetic capacity and a larger percentage of type I muscle fibers These adaptations would improve performance on the Wingate test Bioergetic capacity is the ability to utilize oxygen when beginning an exercise Being able to use more oxygen when beginning an exercise will allow for you body to produce more ATP This increase in bioergetic capacity could be due to increased muscular strength and cardiovascular adaptations and will reduce the amount of lactic acid produced in the muscles Type I fast twitch muscle fibers are associated with anaerobic exercise and training will increase the percentage of these types of muscle fibers They produce high force quick movements but are quickly fatigable Participant 2 was more adept to anaerobic exercise because of their training and likely had a larger bioergetic capacity and a higher percentage of type I muscle fibers Participant 1 is more likely to have a higher percentage of type II muscle fibers as this is an adaptation to aerobic training Despite training adaptations lactate will form during exercise no matter what Lactate is the cause for fatigue during exercise and soreness afterwards Once the blood lactate concentration reaches a certain point the participant can t exercise any longer and the lactate needs to be removed from the blood before they can start exercising again If blood lactate concentration had been measured during the test I would expect to observe the highest concentration during the last few seconds of the test This was the time when the participants were their most fatigued and had their lowest anaerobic power They wouldn t have been able to exercise at their hardest intensity for much longer than the 30 seconds they performed before they were completely fatigued This can be shown by the number of revolutions that each participant provided in the last five seconds of the test participant 1 3 revolutions participant 2 4 revolutions It was the lowest number of revolutions of any of the five second intervals throughout the …
