THE ANALYSIS OF ADAPTATIONS TO TRAINING STIMULI FOR A SPRINT SWIMMER, IN BUTTERFLY STROKE EVENTS
The present paper is a case-study whose goal is to monitor the effects of training specific
to 100m and 200m Butterfly stroke swimming event. Monitoring the evolution of significant
biological parameters and comparing those parameters with reference levels (clearly specified by
standardized tests) and with guiding values provided in the literature, comparing present results
with previous ones, as well as successive testing allow the evaluation of the evolution of these
indicators and the understanding of the specific reactivity of every subject.
Also, using the LACTAT.PAS program that we have developed, we have determined
predicted times for endurance training. The next methodic step is to classify the adaptation state
of the sportsman into one of the four energetic profiles identified.
The accurate monitoring of specific adaptations to sprint effort allowed the controlled guidance
of the training process and the attainment of an optimal state for the upcoming competition.
