Training. Sports. Backstroke swimming


Swimming occupies a distinguished position among other sports, and being dependent on achievement, and as we know that achievement cannot happen unless it includes special and scientific training that is codified in the implementation of training loads of intensity, size and intensity in order to reach the physical and physiological adaptation of the swimmer’s body, and backstroke is one of the types of swimming that needs To its own physical capabilities, especially the 100m backstroke event, which requires training with a high intensity that exceeds 80%, and as a result of tiredness and oxygen consumption, changes will occur in the muscle and lactic acid will accumulate. Therefore, the researchers resorted to using a prepared training program and knowing the extent of its effect on some biochemical variables, including the LDH enzyme, and knowing its importance in accelerating recovery time to delay tiredness among 100-meter backstroke event swimmers.

Research objective

• Developing a training curriculum for 100m backstroke swimmers.

• Identifying the effect of the prepared training curriculum on the special variables for delaying tiredness and achieving the 100m backstroke swimming.

Research hypotheses

• There is a statistically significant relationship between the pre and post-tests for the variables of delaying tiredness and completing the 100m backstroke swimming.

Research Methodology and Field Procedures

Research methodology

The researchers used the experimental method to suit the nature of this research. It is that intellectual organization overlapping in scientific studies, or it is the intellectual steps taken by the researchers to solve a specific problem (Ali Malik Hameed Al-Shouk . 2008).)

Community and sample research

The research sample was determined by the intentional method, and they are the swimmers of the national backstroke team, among the applicants, who numbered (5) swimmers, so the study relied on one experimental group only.

Means of collecting information, the researchers used the following methods

• Sources and references.

• Tests and measurements.

• International information network.

• SPSS statistical program.

Used equipment's

• Stopwatch (2).

• Bowler's watch.

• Anticoagulant (heparin).

• Sterile plastic syringes.

• Antiseptic materials - cotton - plaster.

• Special glass tubes for placing blood.

• Ice box.

• O2 meter.

The researchers used the following variables to indicate tiredness delay

• Resting pulse.

• Pulse after exertion.

• The percentage of oxygen saturation O2 in the blood.

• Recovery time.

• LDH enzyme.

• Swimming 100m backstroke.

Research Tests

Tests are one of the scientific methods that can show the validity of any training program, as they are "a means that requires methods of research, measurement, observation, experimentation, investigation, interpretation, and design." (Jawad. 2017).

• Measuring the pulse at rest and after stress (Polar watch) it is done by wearing a Polar watch that measures the pulse and gives the required number

• Measurement of oxygen saturation. It is done by placing an oxygen-measuring device with the index finger.

• Measuring the recovery time (Polar watch) and is done by wearing a Polar watch that measures the recovery time and gives the required number.

• Measuring the concentration of the enzyme lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) in the blood, and it is done by drawing blood from the swimmer, after wrapping the rubber band on the upper arm, then the needle is inserted accurately into the vein, and the necessary blood for measurement is drawn.

Test of backstroke achievement 100m.

• The purpose of the test: measuring the time of covering a distance of 100 meters at full speed.

• Tools used: stopwatch, whistle, registration form.

• Description of the performance: The swimmer stands on the start board while taking the stand-by for that, and when the whistle is heard, the swimmer jumps into the water, trying to cover the distance at maximum speed until reaching the final edge of the mentioned distance.

• Laboratory degree: minute, second and their parts, as well as the length of the distance traveled.

Search procedures

The pre-tests were applied on 28/12/2022 after which the training program prepared (Appendix 1) by the researchers was implemented using the highintensity interval training method, relying on her experience and training and physiological resources. Abu El-Ela said that most of the changes resulting from the training occur during (6-8) weeks. Each week contained (3) training units, with a total of (24) units, and they were in the period from (2/1/2023 until 25/2/2023). Moreover, the method of raising the training intensity was used in the first, second and third weeks to be reduced in the fourth week and raised in the fifth, sixth and seventh week and lowered in the eighth week and the approved intensity was from 80-95% of the maximum intensity performed by the swimmer.

The curriculum was adopted on dividing the swimming distance into a quarter, a half, and three quarters, and rest was adopted on the return of the pulse to (110-120) pulse / minute according to the system of the interval training method for rest, after which the post-tests were applied on 27/2/2023.

Results and Discussion

After obtaining the results, they were processed statistically, as shown in table (Table 1).

It is clear to us from table 1 that there are significant differences in all research variables, and the researchers attributes this to the effect of the prepared training program that was implemented by the research sample for a period of 8 weeks, and this is consistent with Abu Al-Ela quoting from "Wilmore" It occurs during the first period of application of the exercises, about 6-8 weeks (Ahmed. 1996) Also, " mention that "the effectiveness of stomach exercises appears by continuing training on them for two months" (Muhammad and Abd al-Hadi) . Also, Devereux mentioned that the heart muscle responds quickly to training loads, so regular sports training for a period leads to morphological and physiological changes in the circulatory system, and this depends on the type of exercises performed (Derereux RB , Reichech MD. 1997). Also, training using exercises or distances that are more difficult than general exercises and easier than competition exercises helps to improve motor performance and achievement (Habib. 2017). Through our observation of Table (1), we note the significant differences in the pulse at rest This is confirmed by "it is mentioned that "the regular and rationed training program leads to a decrease in the resting heart rate and after the effort, so repeating the work for a period of weeks helps the players to perform more easily, as adaptation occurs in the body and the training is less energy." (Ibrahim Salama.2000).

Also, with regard to the results of the pulse after the effort, the researchers attributes the significant relationship to the prepared program, as the pulse rises after the effort, and this is confirmed by "as they mention that the heart rate increases during the physical effort, and that this increase is directly proportional to the intensity of the exerted effort". (Wilmore, J.H, costill, D,L. 2005). In addition, "The increase in the number of heart beats is evidence of an increase in the efficiency of the respiratory and cardiac circulatory system under high intensity without feeling tired."( Ali.2017). We note from the table the section of moral oxygen as a result of training, and this is consistent with, "The standardized training increases the ability to extract more oxygen from the blood." (Abdel-Wahhab .1995)

Also "mention that training develops vital organs such as the heart and lungs, which affect the player's performance" (Mukhtar and Hammad 1989). This is confirmed by " who mentions that the pulse rate is one of the most important factors for regulating the size of the cardiac impulse during the different levels of training load, so that the better the training condition of the player, the lower the pulse rate and the more economical the performance with effort, and this helps the coach to determine the intensity of the appropriate load, as the heart rate correlates with the rate of oxygen consumption and the anaerobic sample" (Ali Fahmy Al-Beik. 1997). As for the LDH enzyme, whose result was also significant, the researchers saw that the prepared approach had a clear effect on the positive effect of this enzyme, as the adaptation that occurred in the athlete’s body, increased his activity, fitness, and the ability to continue performing this is thanks to the development of the LDH enzyme, which works to get rid of lactic acid and convert it to Profit, increasing the elimination of lactic acid improves the speed of recovery time, as anaerobic energy is the main energy in short-distance swimming and the 100-meter backstroke swimming is one of these swimmers. This is consistent with the study of " who concluded that accuracy is necessary in selecting training items" (Peter Maud and Carl Foster 2004). In addition, using the interval training method that improves anaerobic capacity.

And also, " mentions (that continuous physical activity increases the elasticity of the muscles and surrounding tissues, and that the performance of exercises of gradual difficulty in the physical elements improves the player's recovery time and enables him to resist tiredness during competitions" (Foran, Bill 2002).

From table 1, we note the development that took place in the achievement of the 100m backstroke swimming, and the researchers attributes this to the program prepared and subject in a correct scientific manner, which led to the development of the physical and functional capabilities of the research sample, which affected the development of the achievement of the 100m backstroke. In this regard, mentions. "The training curriculum inevitably leads to the development of achievement"(Ismail. 1996), this agrees with "A that "the direct use of the interval training method during the training of researcherss leads to an improvement in blood circulation, breathing and speed endurance" (Fahmy and Al-Beik. (1984). And also, according to that "regular and programmed training, the use of rationed types of intensity in training, and the use of optimal rest between repetitions lead to the development of achievement."( Majeed. 1997).

Conclusions and Recommendations


From the aforementioned, the researchers concluded that the prepared curriculum had a positive impact on the development of the selected biochemical variables, as well as the development of the 100-meter backstroke completion time.


The researchers recommend the necessity of studying other biochemical variables and functional variables that have an impact on the development of achievement and applying these variables to other age groups.
