Study Regarding the Effectiveness of Sport Climbing to Increase Certain Strength Parameters in Junior Soccer Players
Strength is an important motor skill, present in various proportions in all motor acts, with a determining role for a successful practice of certain sports. With a lower genetic determinism, strength can develop through systematic training, especially after the age of 14-15, after puberty. Outside the classical means used to develop it, the author has thought that the implementation of certain alternative means could be effective, eliminating the routine and bringing a more relaxed work environment. Thus, a pedagogical experiment was conducted, in which the independent variable was represented by a sport climbing program, introduced in the weekly training cycle for the experimental group, over the course of 14 weeks. Three control challenges were used, during the initial and final tests; the results have confirmed the initial hypothesis, the final conclusions highlighting the positive influence of sport climbing in increasing certain strength parameters.
