Abstract: The purpose of this study was to compare the specificity of the WAnT and a recently developed 200 meter sprint, Hawaii Anaerobic Run Test (HART). by evaluating the performance of seventy seven male and female runners and cyclists and untrained males and females on both tests. The HART protocol consisted of a five minute warm up followed by a 200 meter sprint on a track. The WAnT was performed in the laboratory using a cycle ergometer to perform a 30 second sprint against a weighted flywheel. Finger prick blood lactate samples were taken seven minutes after completion of each test. Pearson product moment correlation coefficients were generated comparing power data from the WAnT with velocities and momentums from the HART. Strong correlations were found between peak and mean momentum and power (r=O.82. r=O.78. respectively). Data from this study suggest that the HART is a valid field test for evaluating anaerobic power during running.
