The Wingate test is a cycle test of anaerobic leg power, conducted over 30 seconds. The test is also known as the Wingate Anaerobic Test (WANT), and was developed at the Wingate Institute in Israel during the 1970's.cycle leg power test

Power Output (kpm•min-1) = [ revs x resistance (kg) x dist (m) x 60 (sec) ] / time (sec)

Watts= kpm•min-1 / 6.123

Watts/kg = Watts / body weight (kg)

Fatigue Index = [ (Peak Power Output - Min Power Output) / Peak Power Output ] x 100
