The Lower Muscles Force Features of Elite Short Track Athletes and Regression Analysis of their 500m Results
In order to point out the relationship between the lower muscles force and 500m result f6r short track speed skating, the knee and ankle muscle strength of elite male skating athletes is measured and analyzed by IsoMed 2000 isokinetic testing system. Based on the features of athletes’ muscle strength, the study tends to find out the differences and drawbacks in short track speed skating athletes and to make further discussion on the laws and determinations of the event. The main conclusions are as follows: 500m result of elite male short track skating athletes are determined by that the muscle performances of fast speed, which including force opportunity, power ability and max-strength ability; the knee muscles are more important than that of the ankle’s; the strength with technique is the core factor for result.
