Body Weight and the Evaluation of the Spiroergometric Test Criteria

  • I. Iliev
Conference paper


Both physical loads under natural conditions and spiroergometric tests reveal close correlations between the total body indices (body weight in particular), the energy consumption, and the working capacity of the vegetative systems supplying body energy. The obvious limiting effect of body size on the working capacity and performance of athletes has led to the introduction of weight classes in wrestling, boxing, weight lifting, and other sports and to specific morphological and functional selection in most sports and sports branches.
