LASERS IN THE PREPARATION AND TRAINING OF SWIMMERS
University, Chair of Rehabilitation and Sporting Medicine.
We report about new method of
enhancement of sporting work capacity by laser’s stimulation, adapted specially
to real training and competitive condition and used in different periods of
Quest for new effective means and
methods of enhancing the physical and the sporting work capacity is a pressing
one not only in connection with the demands of "big” sports but due to
interesting the struggle against the means and the methods whose application in
sports has been prohibited the IOC Medical commission.
In our work we consider the
possibilities of enhancing the physical and the sporting work capacity with
applying the low-energy lasers in swimmers on the base of modern conceptions
namely (1) mechanisms of energy supply of athlete’s organism and its rehabilitation
after physical loads and (2) effects on interacting the low-intensity laser
light with biological object. The new type of the semiconductor portable laser
unit was constructed by us for our work.
In the experiments we have applied our
new method EPWCL (Enhancing of Physical Work Capacity by LASER), as a method of
stimulative influence in the experimental groups (Pavlov S.Ye. et.al., 1992;
Pavlov S.Ye., Kuznetsova T.N., 1997a,b, 1998; Pavlov S.Ye, 1998a,b,c).
In the experiment we have studied (1)
average group indexes of physical work capacity such as VO2max, PWCmax,
twork etc. With swimmers in the veloergometric test of up to full
tiredness along with analysing exhaled gases in the course of testing and (2)
results of conducting the standart swimming test (4x50 m with 15 second rest)
prior and after holding the course of laser stimulative influence.
In accordance with the results of
our experiment we established (1) a considerable increase in the indexes of
physical work capacity, (2) enhancement of sporting work capacity and (3)
heightening of resultance with swimmers during the application of low-energy
lasers on the base of the methodics elaborated by us.
We used our method in successfull
preparation of some russion athletes before Olimpic Games in Barcelona,
Atlanta and Nagano,
Paralimpic Games in Nagano.
