Scholarcy highlights

  • The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of age and recovery duration on performance during multiple treadmill sprints
  • Mean power output, mean force output, running velocity, step length, and step rate were calculated for each sprint
  • Capillary blood samples were drawn from the fingertip at rest and 3 min after the tenth sprint to measure the lactate accumulation
  • MPO and MFO significantly decreased over the ten sprints
  • Delta values were higher in the men compared to the boys
  • Despite the decrease in power and force outputs with R180, the young men were able to maintain their running velocity during the test
