this was to evidentiate the electromiographyc and somatometric
changes at thigh level at athletes who made a trainind schedule at
medium altitude. Material
This study was made on
a 12 athletes group (study group) who benefited by a medium altitude
(1400 m) physical training stage for a month (SEAL program). Surface
electromyography and somatometric measurements were made before and
after physical training period; by surface EMG we monitorize
quadriceps femoral and biceps femoral muscles work potential, rising
time and drop time, using a biofeedback device.
physical training induce a significant increase (p<0,05) of
muscles force, in direct and strong correlation with some
electromyographycal parameters: work potential of thigh muscles
speed at external signals (acoustic signals in our case), by
decreasing rising time for muscular contraction (p<0,05).
The same training schedule made at medium altitude improve
significantly, among the other parameters, the relaxation speed (by
decreasing the drop time, necessary fot muscle to reach the repause
potential after an acoustic signal) on
comparison with other 11 athletes (control group) who made the same
training program at plain.
