Abstract

SANTOS, Thiago Cascaes dos et al. CARMINATTI'S TEST: RELIABILITY ANALYSIS IN YOUNG MILITARY. Rev. educ. fis. UEM [online]. 2015, vol.26, n.2, pp.301-307. ISSN 1983-3083.  https://doi.org/10.4025/reveducfis.v26i2.23244.

The purpose of this study was to analyse the relative and absolute reliability of peak velocity (PV) and heart rate maximum (HRmax) derived from Carminatti's incremental test (T-CAR) in young military. Twenty-seven healthy male (age = 19.3 ± 1.1 years, body mass = 69.5 ± 7.7 kg, height = 1.76 ± 0.9 m, body fat percentage = 8.9 ± 3.2 %) belonging to Brazil's Navy were recruited to participate in the current study. Participants performed two assessment sessions, separated by 48 h, to determine the PVT-CAR and HRmax from the T-CAR protocol. The tests were performed on the same day time, in order to minimize the interference of biological variations. There was no significant differences for PVT-CAR (t=0.773; p=0.446) and HRmax (t=0.543; p=0.592) between the test-retest situation. The intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) for PVT-CAR and HRmax were 0.73 and 0.90, with a coefficient of variation of the typical error of measurement (CVTETM) of 1.55% and 1.28%, respectively. In addition, Bland-Altman plots for PVT-CAR and HRmax suggest that there was acceptable agreement for these measures in repeated conditions. In conclusion, our finding show that there was a low intra-individual variation for PVT-CAR and HRmax, resulting in consistent evidence of absolute (CVETM) and relative (ICC) reliability. As a practical application, the T-CAR test seems to be an interesting alternative to evaluate the maximal aerobic speed of young military at different moments of the annual training planning.
