H05 WAnT Wingate Test

This PRO lesson describes hardware and software setup of the BSL PRO System to record the Wingate Anaerobic Test, explains the Transform menu commands to use for meaningful analysis, and details a complete Wingate Test calculation. In this lesson, the WAnT is performed on a modified, plate loaded, Monark 818E work ergometer. All data collection and analysis is done via the BIOPAC MP30 data acquisition unit and the Biopac Student Lab PRO software.

Experimental Objectives

  1. To describe the use of the BSL PRO to count and collect ergometer flywheel revolutions (pedal revolutions).
  2. To describe the analysis of post-acquisition data.using the BSL PRO transformation options.
  3. To illustrate a complete WAnT calculation.

Tasks Performed by the Student

Subject will pedal full-force (crank) for 30 seconds.
