Abstract

This study was done to determine the relationship of the following factors; -- (1) Anaerobic component -- (2) Efficiency component -- and (3) Aerobic component -- to a one minute maximum performance. -- The sample (N = 20) was subjected to two tests, a maximum, oxygen consumption test and a one minute maximum performance (MMP) test. In addition to these tests, age, height, weight and percentage body fat were obtained. -- All oxygen consumption and work values were expressed as ml. and Kgm respectively per Kg of body weight. Efficiency was defined as work done in Kgm/ml oxygen consumed. -- Spearman's rank correlation coefficients and t-tests for paired samples were employed in the statistical analysis of the data. Significant correlations ( at .01 level) were obtained for the relationships of oxygen debt and anaerobic work to the one minute maximum performance. Significant differences were found between aerobic and anaerobic work and between aerobic and anerobic efficiency. -- It was concluded that, (1) oxygen debt tends toward a positive relationship with MMP; (2) anaerobic work has a positive linear relationship with MMP; (3) ability to work anaerobically is more important to attaining a high MMP than ability to work aerobically; (4) Aerobic efficiency during MMP is significantly higher (.05 level) than anaerobic efficiency; and (5) all of the components - aerobic, anaerobic and efficiency, make some contribution to the MMP.
