Évaluation indirecte de la capacité aérobie d’adolescents obèses : intérêt d’un test de course à pied intermittent court, progressif et maximal

Abstract : Aim: Examine the interest of progressive intermittent running test (15-15) entitled Spartacus to assess indirectly the global level of aerobic capacity of obese adolescents in comparison with the continuous Shuttle run test. Methods: Forty-three obese adolescents (33 girls and 10 boys) performed the two tests. Differences according to the “test”, “sex” and the interaction “test × sex” have been assessed for the maximum heart rate (HRmax), the final running speed, the total and net running durations and the perceived effort. Results and discussion: The results did not reveal any significant inter-test differences for FCmax and the perceived effort. As compared to the Shuttle run test, the Spartacus led to a 20% increased final running speed (11.5 vs. 9.4 km/h) and a 3.3 times longer total running duration (17.3 vs. 5.3 min) for a 1.7 times longer net exercise duration (8.7 vs. 5.3 min, P < 0.001). The results were neither significantly influenced by the “sex” nor by the “test × sex” interaction. Conclusion: The Spartacus intermittent test allowed obese adolescents to reach a similar psychophysiological state effort at the end of the run while producing an increased performance in both speed and duration.
