In this study, it was achieved a parallel between one of the most used protocol for testing anaerobic effort  capacity called  the Wingate Test and the Total Work Performed Test, proposed by Szogy and Cherebetiu , which is used in Romania for about 4o years ago in order to estimate the top athletes. For this study the athletes performed only one 45 seconds maximal effort whereas data issued by the Monark cyclo-ergometer soft have been used to obtain both the significant parameters considered by the TW authors and the ones showed by Szogy and Cherebetiu within the Total Work Performed Test. This study results shoed high significant positive correlations existed between the Peak Power and the Total Work Performed on 10 seconds also between the Total Work Performed on 45 seconds and the Average Power on 30” (p<0.05 for all correlation coefficients).
Key words:

anaerobic capacity, Wingate test, Total Work Performed test, peak power, average power
