The aim of the present study was to investigate the differences in energy system contributions and temporal variables between offensive and all-round playing styles. Fifteen male table tennis players (Offensive players: N = 7; All-round players: N = 8) participated in the study. Matches were monitored by a portable gas analyzer and the blood lactate responses was also measured. The contributions of the oxidative (W-OXID), phosphagen (W-PCr), and glycolytic (W-{[}La]) energy systems were assumed as the oxygen consumption measured during the matches above of baseline value, the fast component of excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOCFAST) measured after the matches, and the net of blood lactate concentration (Delta{[}La]), respectively. Energy systems contributions were not significantly different between the offensive and all-round playing styles (W-OXID : 96.1 +/- 2.0 and 97.0 +/- 0.6%, P = 0.86; W-PCr : 2.7 +/- 1.7 and 2.0 +/- 0.6%, P = 0.13; W-{[}La] : 1.2 +/- 0.5 and 1.0 +/- 0.7%, P = 0.95; respectively), however, magnitude-based analysis of W-PCr presented Likely higher-contribution for offensive compared to all-round players. Regarding temporal variables, only rate of shots presented higher values for offensive when compared to all-round players (P= 0.03), while the magnitude-based analysis presented Very likely lower, Likely lower and Likely higher-outcomes of rate of shots, W-PCr and maximal oxygen consumption, respectively, for all-round players. Strong negative correlation was verified for offensive players between number of shots and W-PCr (r = -0.86, P= 0.01), while all-round players showed strong correlations between rally duration, W-OXID (r = 0.76, P= 0.03) and maximal oxygen consumption (r = 0.81, P= 0.03). Therefore, despite no differences in energy system contributions for offensive and all-round players, different playing styles seems to requires specific energy systems demands. (AU)
