Aquatic Research — Shallow Water Sprinting
Posted by Jane Diack on
Aquastrength is always looking at the latest research to develop evidence based functional fitness programs. Purpose: To compare heart rate, blood lactate, flexibility, perceived exertion and delayed onset muscle soreness in males sprinting inland and shallow water. Subjects and Methods: 20 subjects completed the study Each subject completed ten 9.1m (ten yard) sprints both in water and on land in randomized order. Heart rate, blood lactate, flexibility, and range of motion (ROM) were measured before and immediately after each condition. RPE was assessed immediately after exercise and DOMS was assessed at 24 hr and 48 hr post exercise. Subjects wore...
