Factors influencing early termination of the Chinese swimmers
Li, Fangying ; Jurák, Daniel (advisor) ; Kramperová, Veronika (referee)
Topic: The Factors Influencing Early Termination of Swimming Career in China Goals: We studied a number of young Chinese swimmers who experienced early retirement. Great attention is paid to the reasons why Chinese swimmers ended their careers at a relatively young age. The goal of this thesis is to find out reasons that make Chinese swimmers choose to end their career during their top-performance period and at a much younger age compared with their counterparts worldwide. Meanwhile, finding potential solutions to the situation is also considered as one of the goals of the thesis. Methods: On the basis of literature review, in this study, we collect the characteristics of Chinese swimmers who have experienced early intensive specialized training by conducting observation, interviews, and questionnaires. Results: The number of Chinese swimmers who took early retirement increased incredibly during past twenty years. According to the interviews and the results of the questionnaires, the reasons why Chinese swimmers tend to finish their career at a relatively young age can be classified as follows: 1. Despite the professional training, they lack the spirit while they are training. 2. There are few materials guarantees after they finish their career. 3. Not all swimmers are given what they deserve due...

Title: Effects of water-based aerobic programme on health-related physical fitness and health-related quality of life level in elderly females Objectives: The aim of this study was to asses the effect of shallow water aerobic programme on changes of health-related physical fitness and health- related quality of life level in elderly females. Methods: 33 women (mean age 67 ± 5,2 years) were eligible for participation for the study. Participants were divided into experimental and control group. The experimental group (n = 17) participated in a 6month shallow water aerobic programme once a week 60 minutes. The control group did not participate in the physical program. Body composition, low-back and hamstring flexibility, hand grip strength, upper body and lower body strength, aerobic capacity, dynamic postural stability and health-related quality of life were determined before and after completion. Results: This study has shown that the training programme caused a significant increase in aerobic capacity (p = 0,01; r = 0,62) and in general health perception (p = 0,04; r = 0,36). Keywords: physical fitness, water exercise programme, ageing, quality of life

Title: The influence of a swimming program on functional status of the senior's musculoskeletal system: A Case Report Objectives: The goal of this study is to investigate the current knowledge about the influence of swimming on an senior's body. These findings are further validated by empirical studies on particular individual. It consists of individual swimming program design and series of measurements before the intervention and at the end (in the period of about five months). The results are statistically analyzed. Methods: The work proceeds by literature analysis. Further it proposes a methodology of examining the individual's anamnesis and it uses diagnostic tools to analyze body composition, muscle strength, joint flexibility and range of vital capacity. It makes kinesiology analysis and spirometry. For statistical analysis we used an arithmetic mean and percentage difference of values, which is distinguished mainly by their proportional rise and fall. Results: The results show an improvement in many areas. Hand grip strength tends to align the force of dominant and non-dominant arm. 30 Second Chair Stand Test results are improved. It also recorded an increase in the mobility of the hip joint and a significant improvement in spirometric values, especially peak expiratory flow. Keywords:...

Title: The Spectrum of Teaching Styles in preschool swimming lessons Objectives: The aim of the study is to compare the command didactic style that is traditionally used in swimming lessons for preschool children with reciprocal didactic style and inclusion style. Bachelor thesis verifies the possibility of using selected teaching styles in preparatory swimming lessons. It also evaluates the effectiveness of these selected teaching styles. Methods: In my thesis I used the method of observation. Observations of reactions of children to reciprocal didactic style and inclusion style were registered after each examined lesson to logs that were then analysed. To assess the effectiveness of the selected teaching styles were used the level of swimming test, which was conducted for each of the subjects at the beginning and end of the research. Results: The results show that children accepted the reciprocal didactic style and didactic inclusion style. It took some time before they got used to the reciprocal didactic style while the inclusion didactic style was accepted immediately. These two teaching styles were popular for children. The lessons were more interesting because of use of these didactic styles. Even the teachers were enriched by the new ways of leadership in lessons. For testing the level of...

Title: The effect of water-based exercise program on the functional physical fitness in elderly Objectives: The purpose of this study was to verify the effect of water-based exercise program on functional performance in elderly. Methods: Seven elderly subjects (two men; mean age 70.5 ± 3.5 years and five women; mean age 68.6 ± 8.6 years) volunteered to participate in the study. The subjects participated in a twelve-week supervised exercise program in shallow water once a week (60 min/session). Selected parameters of body composition (body weight, TPH,% TT, TBW, ICW, ECW, ECM / BCM) were determined by multi- frequency bioimpedance electrode (device B.I.A. 2000). The level of hand grip strength was measured by hand-grip dynamometer. The level of lower extremity muscle strength was measured by the 30-Second Chair Stand Test. In order to measure the flexibility of lower back, the standardized motor test Sit and Reach Test was chosen. Results: Intervention program did not induce significant changes in the monitored parameters of body composition. The quality of muscle was unchanged, parameter ECM / BCM remains unchanged. Values of water (ICW and ECW) remained without significant changes and show some stability. A surprising finding is that after the intervention the body fat percentage increased by 7.1%...
