The size of the battery employed is dependent on the sport/position/event being targeted.

Talent identification programmes looking to unearth a challenger to Usain Bolt in the 100m or Paula Radcliffe over the marathon, could argue that individual tests of speed and aerobic capacity would be sufficient.
