Kubišta, Adam ; Gnad, Tomáš (advisor) ; Bačáková, Radka (referee)
Title: Comparison of activation the selected muscles during snowboarding on simulator and snow. Author: Bc. Adam Kubišta Supervisor: PaedDr. Tomáš Gnad Objective: This study aims to compare activation of selected muscles during basic skidded turn on snowboard on simulator and snow. Methods: Muscle activity was measured by a method called surface electromyography. The activation of selected muscles was examined using a comparative analysis. The timing of the participation of selected muscles during the basic skidded turn on snowboard on the Maxxtracks simulator and on the snow was compared. Results: This research with this method did not show a significant similarity in snowboarding on the Maxxtracks simulator and on the snow. The results of our work show the difference in timing of lower limb muscle participation on a snowboard during the basic skidded turn on the Maxxtracks simulator and on the snow. Each participant experienced a different participation of the observed muscles in the step cycle and no obvious movement pattern was discovered. Key words: Snowboarding, electromyography (EMG), muscle activation, simulator

Votavová, Karolína ; Gnad, Tomáš (advisor) ; Fořterová, Petra (referee)
Title: Historical development of snowboarding Objectives: The aim of the thesis is to describe the historical development of snowboarding. Methods: Primary data used to gain a deeper understanding of the subject was obtained through qualitative research, specifically through personal interviews with two respondents. Results: Through guided interviews with selected respondents, it was possible to gain a deeper insight into the period. By comparing the interviews with other experts, it was found that each personality associated with snowboarding has their own perspective on the issue, and their opinions only agree by a small margin. Keywords: snowboarding, history of snowboarding, development of snowboarding, guided interview, comparison of opinions.
In-line skating lessons at primary schools
Doležalová, Lucie ; Gnad, Tomáš (advisor) ; Turčová, Ivana (referee)
Title: Education of inline skating in primary schools Objective: The goal of this thesis was the analysis of the inline skating education in primary schools, focused on the form of education, conditions for education, material and staff equipment. Methods: The theoretical part of the thesis was prepared by descriptive analytical method and research of available Czech literature and foreign sources. Survey research was used in the practical part of the thesis. There were used two different questionnaires: one for the schools which already have inline skating in their education plan and the second one for the schools which do not have it in their education plan. The survey was sent to all primary schools in Czech Republic by email. The results were statistically processed by using absolute and relative frequencies. Results: Inline skating is being taught in 16% of primary schools in Czech republic. There are 4 different forms of education used: a freetime activity in form of extracurricular activity 64,7%, part of physical education lessons for whole class 14,7%, part of physical education as a optional activity for selected members of class 8,8% and extra occasional activities (sport day, school course and others) 5,9%. Most frequently used areas for inline skating are asphalt playgrounds 26% and...
Snowboardcoross technique
Žerava, Jakub ; Gnad, Tomáš (advisor) ; Brtník, Tomáš (referee)
Name: Methodology of snowboardcross Aim: The aim of the bachelor thesis is to process a part of the snowboard cross methodology from the point of view of the technique of ways of overcoming obstacles resulting from their characteristics. Methods: The basic method in this work was the qualitative research and analysis of documents, internet sources. Next method was unstructured interviews with the national coaches of the Czech Republic in snowboard cross and the author's empiric experiences. Results: The methodology thus elaborated for training the technical skills of overcoming obstacles in snowboardcross will serve as a basis for future but also current snowboard cross coaches. Unfortunately, no other methodology so elaborated has been found, but according to the coaches of the Czech Republic team in SBX this methodology is currently the most effective. However, it is not excluded that it may change over the years. Key words: snowboarding, snowboardcross, technique of riding

Bilateral asymmetry of lower limb strength abilities in young snowboardcross athletes
Bohůnková, Marie ; Hank, Mikuláš (advisor) ; Gnad, Tomáš (referee)
The aim of this diploma thesis was to find out the relationships between the performance of strength skills of the dominant and non-dominant lower limbs with respect to the preferred side of riding in snowboarders of different sexes at the racing level. Elite and sub-elite level snowboarders aged 19.16 ± 4.63 years (11 females and 9 males) participated in testing the isokinetic force in the knee joint and the isometric force in the hip joint. Data collection of isokinetic parameters of flexion strength and extension in the knee joint was performed on a Cybex Humac Norm isokinetic dynamometer (Cybex NORM®, Humac, CA, USA). Collection of isometric parameters of abduction force and adduction in the hip joint was performed by the ForceFrame systémem system (Vald Performance, Australia). The position on the snowboard affected the bilateral asymmetry of force in favor (p <0.05) of the dominant limb (front on the snowboard) in some parameters. The magnitude of the isokinetic force between the dominant and non-dominant limbs differed significantly (p <0.05) at extension in the male group, but not in the female group. Significance difference (p <0.05) was found for flexion only for male group. The dominant lower limb achieved a significantly higher (p <0.05) value of the isometric force of abduction in the...
The Comparision of Learning Processes of Snowboarding in the Czech Republic and in Norway
Marková, Pavla ; Gnad, Tomáš (advisor) ; Louka, Oto (referee)
Abstract Title: The Comparison of Learning Processes of Snowboarding in the Czech Republic and in Norway Objectives: The aim of this work is to compare learning processes of snowboarding in the Czech Republic and in Norway. Methods: In our thesis we used a method of analysis of the document and a method of comparison. We have applied the method of analysis in each publication and the method of comparison in teaching methods. In the practical part we have used a method of inquiry and a method of field testing. Results: We found out that the methodological publications written in Czech Republic are very similar to each other. The Norwegian learning processes are different from the Czech ones by using of a method called Partner system and by the basic concept of training. The research showed that the width of the stance according to the Norwegian learning methods is not suitable for the beginners. On the contrary the stance with plus degree on the front foot and minus degree on the rear foot seems to be quite suitable. Keywords: partner system, stance, kinogram, instructor

Mandl, Jan ; Gnad, Tomáš (advisor) ; Finková, Dana (referee)
Title: Characteristics and description of cross-country skiing resorts in the Czech Republic Aim: The aim of this work is to look for cross-country ski resorts in the Czech republic which are suitable for cross-country trainings and competitions of various categories. The extension of this work is the creation of a written and electronic list featuring these areas and including a brief description of their background. The electronic version of the overview of the cross-country resorts, mentioned in this work would be/will be/is posted on the internet for the needs of the ski clubs and cross-country skiing lovers. Methods: The basis of this work is data collection performed by analysis of documents referred to in the literature and on websites. A large amount of the information was provided by the skiers, administrators of sites and their operators. Another method used in this work to determine the actual technical details, especially concerning the individual ski resorts and cross-country skiing routes, was the survey. Given the low responding rate, and because of a very narrow range of questions asked, it was not appropriate to use a method of data collection by questionnaire. Results: Assessment of individual sites based on the offered training opportunities and organization of competitions for...
