Anaerobic capacity evaluation is an important physiological parameter for anaerobic sports. However, there is a lack of valid testing procedures that may be applied into the sports training routine. Although the maximal accumulated oxygen deficit (MAOD) has been accepted as the most appropriated procedure to anaerobic capacity evaluation, it´s high time demanding (10 to 20 submaximal efforts and 1 supramaximal effort) limits MAOD utilization in most of competitive sports. In this context, the purpose of present study is to analyze the validity, reproducibility and sensitivity of a reduced MAOD (MAODred) procedure (a single testing session) to evaluate anaerobic capacity. The research will be divided into 3 phases: 1) evaluation of MAODred validation and evaluation of exercise intensity on test results by comparing MAODred with MAOD; 2) evaluation of MAODred reproducibility and its association with other anaerobic performance parameters (Wingate test, tethered running on treadmill and performance running); 3) evaluation of MAODred sensitivity and testing of subjects with different performance background (sedentary, moderate active and athletes) and with performance altered by caffeine supplementation, as well as evaluation of different types of ergometer on test results (using MAOD for comparison).
