ANTHROPOMETRY AND FITNESS TESTING AS PREDICTORS OF PERFORMANCE IN TWO ELITE CANOEISTS
AbstractIn the previous article it was evident that sport-specific testing indicated superiority of performance for subject 1 (Sl). However, the battery of anthropometric and general fitness tests currently used by the Canadian Canoeing and Kayak Team Program show superiority for subject (S2). S2 was larger (BMI, 25.9 versus 20.9; WHR,0.87 versus 0.81) with less fat (% BODY FAT 5.5 versus 8.2), as well as superior in two of the three general muscular power tests. The discussion of this paper will center on sport-specific versus non-specific testing in regards to their performance associated predictive power.
