A high intensity training group (1,800 m/day at 80% of maximum 200 m time - 90% VO2max) and low intensity training group (1,800 m/day at 70% of maximum 200 m time - 80% VO2max) were compared.
The high intensity group exhibited specific anaerobic adaptations:
Implication. Training must incorporate anaerobic sets if rates of energy use are to be improved. A significant factor in sprinting is the ability to mobilize high levels of energy. Training forms at AN-2 level develop this capacity (see appended table).
