Abstract: The purpose of the study was to examine ifthe Wingate Anaerobic Test (WAnT) is a reliable anaerobic test for boys with intellectual di sability (I D). Sixteen adolescent boys (aged 15.5±1.0yr ) with ID (lQ range 30-50) and with appropriate informed consents performed a 30-s Wingate Anaerobic Test on a cycle ergometer on two separate days. The results indicated that even though adolescent boys with ID had lower PP and MP values than their peers without ID, and were more variable in their performances, given appropriate habituation and practice prior to testing, adolescent males with ID were able to perform the WAnT with significant ' levels (P<0.05) of reliability, agreement and variation.
