The maximal average power output (Wmax) and capacity (Wcap) of the short-term (anaerobic) energy processes are examined in cyclists and young adults with respect to body size and muscularity. The results show that when Wmax and Wcap are standardized for muscle size the power and capacity of the anaerobic mechanisms are similar between trained sprint and pursuit cyclists and untrained young healthy adults. Thus the efficiency of anaerobiosis appears to a function of muscularity in man over the range of subjects studies. From the data it is estimated that the probable efficiency of supra maximal cycling is of the same order (0.22) as found for steady state submaximal (aerobic) exercise.
