The Comparative Study on Lower Limb Muscles between International and National Master Skating Athletes
The knee and ankle muscle strengths of excellent male 500 meters skating athletes were measured and analyzed by means of the CYBEX NORM isokinetic testing and rehabilitation system. The study provides scientific basis for the coaches understanding the practical muscle capacity in accordance with special event, and for the analysis on athletes’ practical training level, potentials and drawbacks of main special muscles. The results are as follows: there are distinct differences between the two groups in some muscles of knee and ankle. The muscle strength features of international skaters are better than national skaters’.
