‘Is there a significant difference in changes in mean power output during the 30 second Wingate test between active and passive
For the assignment, you have been provided with a dataset from 10 University team sport athletes. The data was collected using
the following method:
1. On one occasion participants completed two 30 second Wingate tests with a 5 minute passive recovery (lying supine) between
each effort. Mean power was calculated for both sprints
2. On another occasion the same participants completed two 30 second Wingate tests with a 5 minute active recovery
(cycling at 30% VO2max) between each effort. Mean power was calculated for both sprints.
You must use the information and data provided to answer the research question by producing a Results, Discussion and
Conclusion section of a lab report.
Results: You need to use the data provided to answer the research question. This must be done by appropriately analyzing,
presenting and describing the results.
Discussion: Here you need to explain your results, referring to the key fundamental physiology concepts and published
Conclusion: This should be your take home message and summary
