Groups of top weight lifters, swimmers, runners and skiers were examined as regards functional capacity (maximal oxygen consumption measured during graded work load on a horizontal tread-mill), body build and composition (densitometry). Significant differences in mean ages (highest in skiers, lowest in swimmers) and body dimensions, attributable to natural selection, were found (highest length dimensions in swimmers, lowest in weight lifters). According to the specificity of training in… CONTINUE READING
