Study regarding the bio-motor capacity of Division A female handball players

This paper presents a study trying to assess the level of bio-motor capacity recorded by the Stiinta Bacau Sports Club female handball players, at the beginning of their training period. For this assessment, we chose as an evaluation test, the "15 jumps" drill, performed using both legs, only the right leg, and only the left leg. As an assessment device, we used a DELSYS Myomonitor IV 16 channels electromyograph. The results recorded in August 2011 have emphasized the fact that the average unit power had individual average values between 3.13 and 5.26 W/kg body, and a general average value of 3.92 W/kg body, for the takeoff height, the individual average values were between 22 cm and 46 cm, with an average group value of 29 cm, the repetition speed had individual values between 0.27 and 0.17 s, with a group average of 0.21 s. The energetic variability coefficient values for this group of female players were between 0.81 and 4.49%, with an average of 2.10%, which shows an excessive automatism, deduced from the two-leg take-off value, and thus a low effectiveness during competition situations, while the structural variability coefficient values were between 4.33 and 22.04%, with an average of 8.40%, which draws attention to the fact that one of the female athletes is subjected to the risk of injury. The hypothesis stating that the players composing the handball team have high values regarding the power indicators, and an energetic variability coefficient, and a structural variability coefficient that allow an effective activity, was not confirmed. Creating an individualized training program, according to each player's training level, constitutes a primal condition for any training process.
