Abstract

It would be recommended to pay swimming the proper attention, both from the perspective of knowing the effort involved and its training methodology. New studies have shown that there are other ways of getting results, sometimes in a shorter period of time than in the case of classic training. A new method, used in this study, is repeat sprint training. The difference between the sprinters' technique and the long distance swimmers' technique is mainly in regard to the race rhythm, more than the specialization of the swimmer. The hypothesis of this research is that repeat sprint training influences/ improves the swimmers' aerobic capacity. At the end, an increase was observed in the maximum alactic and lactic powers, of 50% and 83%, respectively, after the training, in all experimental group subjects.
