Validity and Reliability
To determine the validity of a test, the test must be compared to a ‘gold standard’ protocol that is known to produce accurate and reliable results. However, there is no ‘gold standard’ protocol to measure anaerobic capacity or power (14). Instead, the Wingate test has been compared with laboratory findings, sports performances, and sports specialty to verify its validity as a testing protocol, and the results of this research indicate that it is an accurate and validity indicator of these measures (2). Thus, the Wingate Anaerobic test can be used as a valid and reliable predictor of anaerobic capacity and power.
