The Effect of Proprioceptive Training upon the Upper Limbs Strength on Posttraumatic Shoulder Recovery in Weightlifter Women
Keywords:recovery, shoulder, proprioceptive training, weightlifters women, upper limb strength
This paper aims to examine the effects of proprioceptive training upon upper limbs force in the case of female weightlifters. 10 weightlifters from CSS N. Rotaru in Constanța, Romania, took part in an experiment specially designed for this purpose. The experimental group was assigned a proprioceptive training programme of 15 minutes two times per week, for a period of 20 weeks. The tests administered for the assessment of their upper limbs force were push-ups, push-ups on the Bosu ball, and dynamometry testing. Data analysis shows that no significant differences between the experimental group and the control group are visible at the initial test (p> 0.05). In the final evaluation, however, the experimental group obtained better scores than the control group in all tests. These findings indicate that the proprioceptive programme proposed has lead to the enhancement of female weightlifters’ muscular force. In conclusion, the programme is an efficient training tool that can be integrated with the sportswomen’s exercise routine.
