Relationship among sprint performance body composition and aerobic power in collegiate people

Cengiz, Asim
Aksoy, Yener
This study was aimed to investigate relationship among aerobic power, 10 meters and 100 meters sprint running speed, vertical jump and physical properties of male and female adolescents who engaged in regular physical activity. This study consisted of a total of 877 adolescents including 725 male and 142 female. A 12 minutes run for aerobic power test, vertical jump for anaerobic power, 10 meters and 100 meter sprints, body height, body weight, skinfold measurements and body mass index (BMI) assessments were made respectively. Independent t-test analysis was performed for comparison between the male and female in all variables. To determine the relationship variables, the correlation coefficients were calculated. It was determined that 100 meters test was highly correlated than 10 meters speed tests, vertical jump score was more powerful indicator than anaerobic power, and the sum of seven skinfold was also more powerful indicator than BMI in determination of aerobic power in males. Aerobic power showed no significant correlation with body weight, body height, BMI, vertical jump score, anaerobic power and 10 meters sprint in females. The aerobic power increases with increasing the sprint distance. The vertical jump height, anaerobic power, 10 m sprint running speed, 100 m sprint running speed, body weight, BMI and the sum of 7 skinfolds measurement have more assocations of aerobic power in males while 100 m sprint running speed, and the sum of 7 skinfolds measurement were strongly correlated with aerobic power in females.


Investigation of the Effect of Vertimax V8 Elastic Resistance Platform and Classic Strength Training on Dynamic Balance in Basketball Players
This study aimed to investigate the effects on the dynamic balance of two different resistance training in male basketball players. 25 male basketball players who were over 18 participated in the study voluntarily. Participants were divided into two groups by using random sampling method as VertiMax strength training group and traditional strength training group (VertiMax, n=13; classic, n=12). Both training programs were administered 3 times a day for 6 weeks. In standing position, the dynamic balance valu...

A comparison of the endurance training responses to road and sand running in high school and college students
Yigit, SS; Tuncel, F (1998-05-01)
This study compared the physical and physiological alterations that occurred in male high school and college students as a result of a 6-week endurance training program. Fifty-one students, ages 15 to 21, were assigned to 1 of 3 groups: road (n = 14), sand (n = 19), or control group (n = 18). The 12-min run/walk test, vertical jump (VI), and thigh and calf circumference were measured pre-and posttraining. One-way ANOVA, paired t-test, and Tukey test were used to evaluate the effects of training. Sand runner...
Effects of stimulus speed, exercise intensity, and experience level on coincidence anticipation timing in badminton players
Golshaei, Bahman; Kirazcı, Sadettin; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2020)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of stimulus speed, exercise intensity, and experience level (experienced, novice, & sedentary) on coincidence- anticipation timing performance of adolescent badminton players. 139 participants consist of experienced (n=42), novice (n=43) badminton players, and sedentary (n=54) with the age range of 11 to 17 years old voluntarily participated in the presented study after ethical approval. Coincidence anticipation timing scores was evaluated by Bassin Antic...
Ball speed during the tennis serve in relation to skill level and body height
Söğüt, Mustafa (2016-07-01)
The purpose of this study was to determine the possible relations between serve speed and tennis skill level, and body height. Participants were male (n= 16) and female (n= 17) junior (age= 13.58 ± 1.25) tennis players. Serve speed was evaluated through using a sports radar gun. Tennis skill level was assessed by means of International Tennis Number (ITN) on-court assessment protocol. Pearson’s correlation coefficient indicated significant and positive relationships between serve speed and ITN in both male ...
