LOPEZ GALARRAGA, Aldo V et al. DETERMINATION OF ENERGETIC WASTE BY THE FACTORIAL METHOD IN HIGH VELOCITY SKIIERS. Rev haban cienc méd [online]. 2009, vol.8, n.2, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1729-519X.
Four and five female and male speed roller skaters of Cuban team were studied for nutritional status and energy cost estimation even as energy recommendations. A microcycle type of general (G) and special (S) training phases was the frame for measuring. EC was determined by factorial method. Inferential statistics for estimating differences between variables by sex and phases of training was for p ≤ 0,05. In order to make energy recommendations a PAL was also estimated. Morphological characteristics were similar to those reported in Colombian roller skaters and BMI was adequate. Sport training energy cost was significantly different in both phases and TEC was higher in G. It was observed that male skaters showed a trend to have higher values for all variables with the exception of discretionary activities in S and PAL for both phases. Energy recommendations depended on training phase of speed roller skaters.
