1. Rodríguez Zamora, Lara. Physiological responses and competitive performance in elite synchronized swimming.

Degree: 2013, Universitat de Barcelona

Synchronized swimming (SS) is a sports discipline combining swimming, dancing and gymnastics. Synchronized Swimmers perform a choreography called routine consisting of elaborate moves in the water accompanied by music. Previous research investigating SS from a physiological perspective has mainly used figures or fractionated and/or simulated routine protocols during training, although the nature of sports leads to continuous very demanding exercises (~2-4 minutes) performed at increasingly higher levels of intensity with almost 50% of this time underwater. In addition, different from training, competition is a challenging situation which usually stimulates higher psycho-physiological responses in the participant. Current knowledge is thus limited as regards physiological responses in competitive elite SS. Therefore, the overall aim of this thesis is to study the physiological responses related to performance during the execution of competitive routines both during training and competitive sessions in elite synchronized swimmers. The thesis is based on three studies (Studies I – III); all of them use the same protocol with continuous cardiovascular monitoring during competitive routines, perceived exertion assessment after the executions, and blood lactate measurements (Studies I and III). Study I characterized the physiological responses in relation to performance during an official competition. In Study II the execution of the duets in both conditions –training and competitive session– was used to compare the athletes’ internal load in order to ascertain whether swimmers may achieve the competitive intensity during training sessions, and Study III was performed to investigate how immersion periods, with the concomitant bradycardic events, affect perceived exertion with both physiological (HR) and subjective perceptual markers (RPE). The current thesis demonstrates that cardiovascular responses during competition are characterized by intense anticipatory pre-activation and rapidly developing tachycardia up to maximal levels with interspersed periods of marked bradycardia during the exercise bouts performed in apnea (Studies I­III). Moderate blood lactate accumulation suggested the activation of the glycolytic metabolism in the exercising muscles and an adaptive metabolic response due to the specific training adaptations in this kind of athletes (Studies I and III). Furthermore, competitive routines were perceived as very to extremely intense by all swimmers, likely reflecting not only the absolute exercise demands but also their previous experience and expectations (Studies I – III). In Study II, the internal load (HR and RPE) imposed by SS duets performed during training was virtually identical to that elicited in a real competitive situation due to the effects of automaticity –embodied through the replication of the same movement sequence in practice–, and by the swimmers’ long-term adaptations to specific routine exercise and apnea. There was a strong positive relationship between RPE and the duration and / or… Advisors/Committee Members: Institut Nacional d'Educació Física de Catalunya (Barcelona), [email protected] (authoremail), false (authoremailshow), Iglesias i Reig, Xavier, 1965- (director), Rodríguez, Ferran A.

2. Palatzi Fernández, Jordi. Qualitat organitzativa en les regates del Circuit Català de Vela Lleugera: Estudi per a la millora contínua.

Degree: 2017, Universitat de Barcelona

The purpose of this study was to know and assess the perception on the organization quality of light regattas in the Catalonian circuit so as to provide the foundations and tools necessary for the continuous improvement of this service. The lack of studies on this theme and the evidence about the need to explore this field, motivated this investigation. To this end, five types of analysis were undertaken: (1) the assessment of the value and importance given by the regatta participants (racers and coaches) to different organizational factors; (2) the comparison of the assessment results of both collectives; (3) the analysis of the all the organization aspects stemming from step 1, through a type IPA (Importance-Performance Analysis) in order to determine the type of action more appropriate in each case; (4) the correlation among all the variable in order to explore the general state of affairs of the quality of organization of regattas and the possible dimensions that determine such quality; and (5) the psychometric analysis of the questionnaires designed and applied in order to determine their validity and reliability. The latter (Navigaqualit) was developed from the contributions of experts in a previous pilot study. Starting with three sets of questions and based on the three stages of development of the regatta events, a chronological sequence was followed according to the logic of the “moments of truth”. This study’s sample consisted of 135 participants (119 racers and 16 coaches). Despite the differences in the responses between both groups, it was considered feasible to group them in a single sample. Among the results, it is worth mentioning the users’ high degree of exigency, as well as the fact that the vast majority of the organizational factors were deemed in the need of improvement. Concerning the questionnaire, its validity and reliability were confirmed, particularly the section that measures the degree of satisfaction, which presented a high degree of reliability. The Navigaqualit allowed to explore the organizational quality of regattas in the sailing Catalonian circuit and could become a tool with great potential.
