This study aims to propose and validate the tethered swimming lactate minimum test (TSLacmin) estimating aerobic and anaerobic capacity in one single test session, using force as measurement parameter. 6 male and 6 female young swimmers (age = 15.7 +/- 1.1 years; height = 173.3 +/- 9.5 cm; weight = 66.1 +/- 9.5 kg) performed 4 sessions comprising i) an all-out 30 s test and incremental test (TSLacmin); ii) 30 min of tethered swimming at constant intensity (2 sessions); iii) free-swimming time trials used to calculate critical velocity. Tethered swimming sessions used an acquisition system enabling maximum (Fmax) and mean (Fmean) force measurement and intensity variation. The tethered all-out test lasting 30 s resulted in hyperlactatemia of 7.9 +/- 2.0 mmol.l(-1). TSLacmin presented a 100 % success applicability rate, which is equivalent to aerobic capacity in 75 % of cases. TSLacmin intensity was 37.7 +/- 7.3 N, while maximum force in the all-out test was 105 +/- 27 N. Aerobic and anaerobic TSLacmin parameters were significantly related to free-swimming performance (r = -0.67 for 100 m and r = -0.80 for 200 m) and critical velocity (r = 0.80). TSLacmin estimates aerobic capacity in most cases, and both aerobic and anaerobic force parameters are well related to critical velocity and free swimming performance. (AU)
