Title: Paddling performance and ranking position in junior surfers competing at the association of surfing professionals: a pilot study
Author: Cámara, Jesús; Maldonado Martín, Sara; Fernández López, Juan Ramón; González Goyonaga, Moisés
Abstract: Los objetivos de este estudio piloto son por un lado, determinar las características aeróbicas de surfistas junior que compiten en la rama Europea de la Asociación de Surfistas Profesionales (ASP) y por otro, analizar la relación de estas características con la posición en el ranking. Diez surfistas tomaron parte en el estudio. Se realizó un test máximo incremental en un ergómetro. Se determinaron el consumo máximo de oxígeno (VO2MAX), la potencia máxima (WMAX), la frecuencia cardiaca máxima (HRMAX), la máxima producción de lactato en sangre ([La]MAX) y la potencia en el umbral de lactato (WLT) y en el inicio de la acumulación de lactato en sangre (WOBLA). No se observó una relación significativa entre la posición en el ranking y los parámetros a intensidad máxima (VO2MAX, WMAX, HRMAX y [La]MAX). La WLT (W • kg-1) y la WOBLA (W • kg-1) mostraron una relación significativa con la posición en el ranking (r= -0.69, p= 0.02; r= -0.72, p= 0.01, respectivamente).The aims of this pilot study are on one hand, to evaluate the upper body aerobic characteristics of junior surfers competing at the European branch of the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) and on the other, to assess the relationship between the junior surfers’ upper body aerobic characteristics and their ranking position. Ten surfers competing at the European junior branch of the ASP took part in the study. The maximal oxygen uptake (VO2MAX), the maximum power output (WMAX), the maximum lactate concentration [La]MAX, the maximum heart rate (HRMAX) and the power output at the intensity where the lactate threshold and the onset of blood lactate accumulation are produced (WLT and WOBLA) were determined during an incremental maximal test in a swim bench ergometer. It was observed a lack of a significant relationship between the ranking position and the parameters at maximal intensity (VO2PEAK, WMAX, HRMAX y [La]MAX). The WLT (W • kg-1) and the WOBLA (W • kg-1) were significantly related to ranking position (r= -0.69, p= 0.02; r= -0.72, p= 0.01, respectively).
