Abstract : College basketball athletes (N=9) were studied to determine the effect of a season of competition on the aerobic and anaerobic energy sources. Pre and postseason variables of resting and recovery heart rates plus performance on the Balke treadmill test (time) and the Margaria anaerobic capacity test (vertical velocity and kcal/min) were studied. Analysis of data yielded nonsignificant decreases in recovery heart rate and treadmill performance time, a nonsignificant increase in resting heart rate and anaerobic power and a significant increase in vertical velocity from pre to post-test. The results of this investigation suggest that the training regime, basketball, may have been more anaerobic than aerobic in nature. (Author)
