Abstract

We value the importance of the time of recovery between routines as well as the post-training ingestion to favour the recovery processes between two sessions of training. In order to do that we analyse the importance that the anaerobic ways of obtaining energy possess inside the activities developed in the training of these gymnasts. We analyse the mean values of lactate obtained from 4 male gymnasts of 17,75 ± 0,5 years after the two minutes of recovery that followed the realization of each one of the three series of competition exercises in three apparatus (rings, floor and parallel bars), separated each other 8 minutes. These values are analysed together with the observations of two lactate samples after 5 and 10 minutes of the end of the last series. The results show that the mean values of lactate obtained range between 6,8 and 9,9 mmol/l during the 35 minutes that the treatment lasts in each apparatus. We can conclude that anaerobic ways play a very important role in the energetic genesis. That is the reason why the length and the activity carried out during the pause, along with to the certain intake of some nutrients immediately after the conclusion of the training session, favour a quicker synthesis of the energetic substratum’s consumed during the session. This accelerates the recovery and facilitates a bigger potential of performance.
