Analysis of Biomechanical Characteristics of Acrobatic Elements on Balance Beam
International Journal of Emerging Research in Management and Technology
he scientific argument is to highlight the kinematic and dynamic characteristics of the key components of sports technique used for the acrobatic elements on balance beam. These characteristics, submitted to computerized biomechanical video analysis, contribute to the assessment of technical training level and methodological orientation for technical execution improvement. This scientific approach has led to the organization of a study conducted from 2012 to 2013 with a group of 13 junior
... of 13 junior gymnasts aged 12 to 15 years, members of Juniors Olympic team of Izvorani. Biomechanical analysis has been made using Physics Toolkit program and movement postural orientation method, pointing out the key elements of sports technique on balance beam. The study results revealed the anthropometric and biomechanical indicators necessary for biomechanical analysis of the acrobatic elements used in the competitive exercises on balance beam executed separately, in connection or mixed way by junior gymnasts aged 12 to 15. The results also revealed the influence of the kinematic and dynamic characteristics on the technical execution consistent with the performances achieved in competitions.
