Abstract
This research analyzes the techniques involved in basic winding in relation to anthropometric characteristics of subjects. The first aim of this study was to determine whether there is a statistically significant difference between the subjects in the technique of performing basic curvature in relation to their anthropometric characteristics. The second aim of this study was to determine the difference in the technique of primary windings in relation to anthropometric characteristics of subjects. In a sample of 30 students, average age 22 years, male, measuring by 12 anthropometric measures and a situational-motor test was carried out. Alpine skiing technique was assessed through primary windings, the technical element of skiing which is present in the basic form of skiing. Based on the performance of the basic curvature and the obtained results, three subsamples of respondents were defined as "weak", "moderate" and "good". Between the treated subsamples, differences in anthropometric characteristics were established and clearly defined limits in the degree of adoption of the basic winding technique. The subsample defined as "weak" has less pronounced measures of longitudinal and transverse dimensionality, volume and body weight and moderately has pronounced skin folds of the upper arm and back, more pronounced length of the lower leg. The subsample defined as "moderate" has less pronounced skin folds and moderately expressed the length of the lower leg, the circumference of the upper leg and the diameter of the knee. Body height, shoulder width, skin fold of the abdomen, body weight, arm length, medium chest circumference and pelvic width are more pronounced. The subsample defined as "good" has a less pronounced knee length and medium chest circumference and has a moderately pronounced body height, shoulder width, skin fold of the abdomen, body weight, arm length and pelvic width. It has more pronounced skin folds of the upper arm and back, as well as the circumference of the upper leg and the diameter of the knee. Based on these results, we can conclude that, the differences are established and boundaries are clearly defined in the level of adoption of the basic winding techniques between subsamples in relation to anthropometric characteristics.
