The outcome of the Wingate test will be investigated for both power and endurance athletes in regards to physiological adaptations as a response to power and endurance training. It is hypothesized that throughout the Wingate testing, endurance athletes will display greater recovery heart rates and lower blood pressure values due to their superior aerobic capacity. However, power athletes will maintain a lower overall percent of maximum heart rate reached, as well as lower RPE values due to superior adaptations in the creatine-phosphate, lactate clearing, and anaerobic energy systems.
