Abstract

Basketball is a very demanding sport. Game effectiveness depends on a large number of physical and psychological abilities, technical competence, etc. Thus appropriate comprehensive complex approach to laboratory testing and its data interpretation play a considerable role in suggestion the proper training prescription and schedule, taking into consideration weak points of tested athletes. The aim of the proposed study was to choose appropriate and accessible laboratory testing methods and present their results. Fourteen professional male basketball players aged 24.8±5.4 years underwent bioimpedance analysis of body composition, maximal cycling test, hemodynamics monitoring, Wingate-test, jump performance analysis and psychophysiologic tests. These allowed to define the physical and psychophysiologic profiles of athletes. It was revealed, that (i) athletes had low percentage of fat (10.3±4.7 %) and high level of muscle mass (85.4±4.5 %); (ii) excellent volume heart parameters (SV – 137.00±19.93 ml) and low RHR – 49.08±6.56 bpm; iii) lowered VO2max 47.52±6.14 ml/kg/min, Ve – 145.3±36.4 l/min, P VO2max – 4.13±0.58 W/kg; (iiii) lower than expected strength abilities – peak power of arms – 6,47 ±0,87 W/kg and relative maximal power of legs – 42,17±4,22 W/kg, respectively. The obtained data provided with valuable information for further improvement of training process.
