Meet the Author

Omri Inbar, FACSM, EdD, was research associate in the Department of Research and Sports Medicine at the Wingate Institute from 1973 to 1986 and was head of the Life Sciences Department from 1986 to 1991. In 1984 he founded the Exercise Physiology Department at the Mor Institute for Medical Data in Tel Aviv, serving as its director until 1990. He helped establish the exercise medicine unit at the Lincs Clinic in Edmonton, Canada, in 1991 and served as its director of clinical physiology until 1994.

Inbar returned to the Wingate Institute in 1995 and now is scientific consultant to several major Israeli organizations. He is a member of many physiology associations, including the American Physiological Society, the Israeli Society of Physiology and Pharmacology, the Israeli Sports Medicine Association, and the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology.

Since earning his doctorate in Applied Physiology from Columbia University, Inbar has had articles published in numerous professional books and journals and has lectured at scientific meetings worldwide.

The late Oded Bar-Or, MD, was head of the Department of Research and Sports Medicine at the Wingate Institute when the Wingate Anaerobic Test was developed. He was also a professor of pediatrics and director of the Children's Exercise and Nutrition Centre of McMaster University and Chedoke-McMaster Hospitals in Hamilton, Ontario, where most of the subsequent development and adaptation of the test has taken place.

A world-wide conference speaker, Bar-Or did extensive research on the responses of children and adolescents to exercise. His research has been published in journals such as the Journal of Applied Physiology, Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, and Pediartic Exercise Science.

Bar-Or received his medical degree at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel, and was the founder and director of the Department of Research and Sports Medicine at the Wingate Institute until assuming his current position in Canada. He was president of the Canadian Association for Sports Sciences (now the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology), president of the International Council for Physical Fitness Research, vice president of the American College of Sports Medicine, and a board member for the Sports Medicine Council of Canada.

James S. Skinner, PhD, became professor of kinesiology at Indiana University in 1996. Prior to the move, he was a professor in the Department of Exercise Science and Physical Education at Arizona State University, where he directed the Exercise and Sport Research Institute (1983-1995). Skinner, and colleagues from four other universities, earned a five-year, $9.5 million research grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.

A past president of the American College of Sports Medicine, Skinner is also a member of the American Alliance of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, the American Academy of Kinesiology and Physical Education, and numerous other national and international professional organizations. His work has been published in over 100 professional journals, and he has lectured in 37 countries.

Skinner earned his doctorate in Physical Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

    dated, with many missing elements

    While there is no single anaerobic test for the measurement of different components of anaerobic metabolism equally, the Wingate anaerobic test (WAT) has become increasingly the defacto standard for assessment of both the lower and upper extremities due to the numerous publications on this topic. This book represents the seminal work of the original proponents of the WAT. However, for those who are seeking a full description of the protocol, from manual egrometry calibration to the use of opto-sensor for automatic flywheel revolution counting, they will be disappointed. Similarly, coaches and trainers will find no norms with which to compare WAT power output of their trainees as only ¿typical values of WAT¿ of soldiers were made available. This is surprising considered the fact the WAT was developed in the 1970s. For any test to be valid, results should firstly be obtained from the use of a properly calibrated test system. As for test reliability, it is interesting to note the use of interclass test-retest reliability for the WAT (instead of intra-class correlation coefficient). When pairs or multiple of measurements on a group of test subjects are taken, many researchers tend to plot one measurement against the second with a ¿best-fit-line¿ through all paired measurements, presenting great challenges in the interpretation of the resulting correlation coefficient (coeff). As this coeff is dependent upon the variability between the subjects. Thus subjects with different performance capability in a group will yield large coeff compared to group of subjects of similar capability. The ¿high¿ test-retest reliability was illustrated in the text with disabled children (Figure 3.1) with spastic CP and other forms of neuromuscular disease. The resulting high coeff would not be unexpected, as among these subjects, many would have presented with different stages of progression of their disease state and therefore, different physical performance capability. Inertial effects associated with accelerating and decelerating the flywheel and crank of a mechanically-braked (friction-loaded) cycle-ergometer require energy and therefore, constitute a valid component of the test subject¿s power output. The text, however, continues the ¿long tradition¿ ignoring flywheel inertia in power output measurement. Lastly, recent investigations have shown the relative optimal load as recommended for the WAT, at 0.075kp/kg, is to be too low in eliciting peak power not just for adults, but also for untrained children. Many now advocate an optimal load between 0.09-0.10kp/kg so as not to underestimate the WAT output. As this is the ONLY TEXT on the subject, it is hoped that the ¿missing elements¿ will be addressed in the coming edition, perhaps in the form of a compendium with the contribution from leading researchers in the field, making this text a true classic.
