How do you measure up to NHL hockey players?

September 18, 2019 — 

A research team at the University of Manitoba is looking for hockey players to participate in a study exploring how warm-up exercises impact on-ice performance.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the inclusion of a dynamic warm-up prior to the
Wingate Test will increase anaerobic performance of ice hockey players.

Did you know the average NHL player has a VO2 of 55-60 ml/kg/min? What’s yours?

The Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management research team also aims to determine whether biological variability impacts participants responses to the dynamic warm-up intervention.

Here are the details:

  • Five tests in different days: 1 VO2max test and 4 bouts of 30-second high intensity cycling (Wingate Anaerobic Test) with/without dynamic warm-up
  • Wingate testing is used in professional sport combines/testing
  • Analysis of cardiovascular and anaerobic performances
  • Conducted at the University of Manitoba
