Metodology for planning shallow-water fitness
AbstractThe aim to this study was analyze a methodology for a shallow-water fitness planning. Seventeen women performed individually shallow-water fitness. We obtained the oxygen uptake (gas analyzer TEEM 100) and heart rate (frequency meter Polar®-plus Accurex) every 20 seconds. The blood lactate concentration (lactimeter portable Biosen 5030 EKF-Diagnostic) and rate perceived exertion (RPE) were collected every 5 minutes and 50 seconds. Mean, repeated-measures ANOVA and Bonferroni´s post hoc tests were used for each variable between the phases and the six blocks of class (p < .05). The variables increased progressively until block 4 and, from block 5 they started to decrease, which confirmed the pyramid structure suggested. The responses found at the main phase indicate that the physical fitness can be improved when shallow-water fitness is performed regularly and in the same situation as in this study, with a RPE fairly easy. In conclusion, this methodology structure seems to be efficient for others shallow-water fitness.
