Abstract

Good results in sports competitions are directly related to a proper evaluation of the athlete's metabolic energy capability during training phases. Using protocols considered gold standard to measure aerobic or anaerobic capacity and power requires a large number of test sessions. This could reduce the practical applicability of such tests during longitudinal studies which aim to investigate improvement techniques for the human body's metabolic energy provision. Thus, some sports researches choose to evaluate only some of the key parameters related to metabolic energy provision, possibly ignoring others which could have even greater importance in the performance of the evaluated athlete. A protocol which provides four parameters of the individual's metabolic energy capability in one single test session seems to be a good alternative to this problem. In cyclergometer, the three minute All-Out protocol (AO3') produces reliable parameters, which in turn are well related to gold standard measures of aerobic capacity (critical power), anaerobic capacity (Maximal Accumulated Oxygen Deficit), aerobic maximum power (VO2max) and anaerobic maximum power (mechanical peak power). However, AO3' application in running is scarcely observed, and for this an adequate tool to evaluate mechanical force and power specifically during running efforts is required. The current project aims to conduct the AO3' in running efforts under laboratorial and field conditions, using the tethered and semi-tethered running models. This protocol applicability for running efforts, as well as its parameters validity and reliability will be accessed. Data reliability will be addressed based on retest procedures. Construct and concurrent validity extent will be evaluated based on comparisons with well established protocols for each variable, as well as consistency analysis with physiological parameters as excess post-exercise oxygen consumption and post exercise lactate kinetics.
