Abstract

Prevailing physiological paradigms explain both sprint and endurance exercise performance in terms of the availability of metabolic energy. However, for all-out efforts of 60 s or less, the prevailing view is no longer viable. Contemporary evidence indicates that sprinting performance is determined by musculoskeletal force application, with a duration dependency explained by the intrinsically rapid rates at which skeletal muscle fatigues in vivo.
