ABSTRACT
Our current research involves determining effort dynamics on a couple of performance dancers (dancesport - standard dances), in the pre-competitive stages for two successive competitions: Romanian National DanceSport Championship, held in Iasi, on the 1st and 2nd of March, 2014 The WDSF DanceMasters International DanceSport competition, held in Bucharest, on the 29th and 30th of March, 2014. The athletes used in our study are registered members of the Katamis DanceSport Club in Craiova, Romania – official member of the Romanian DanceSport Federation. The two dancers compete together in the Junior II age category (14-15) for standard dances (Slow Waltz, Tango, Vienesse Waltz, Slowfox, Quickstep), and have been dancing together as a couple from the age category Juvenille II (10-11), therefore, approximately 4 years. The premises of the study were that, from one competition to another, by means of specific competitive training, the motor fitness of athletes improves as well as the restore capacity of their bodies and all these in order to obtain and maintain a good fitness. The hypothesis was to ascertain whether, in determining the dynamics of effort in pre-competitive stages, before each of the two main competitions (four weeks apart), it enhances the ability of the body to restore and increase the motor fitness.
In this regard tests were applied and there appeared significant differences between the two points which they were recorded and so we can say that both the motor fitness of athletes and the ability to restore the body after effort.
