Raif Zileli, Mehmet Söyler


The aim of this study is to examination of some physical and biomotor parameters of Turkey National Junior Women Boxing Team during six-week training camp before European Championship.

27 boxers from Turkey National Junior Women Boxing Team participated in the research. The age of the boxers was x̅=15.85±0.45 years, the height of boxers was x̅=163.00±6.08cm and the body weight of boxers was x̅=63.78±14.30 kg. Boxers participating in the study were given a 6-week training program prepared and scheduled by Turkey Boxing Federation. Some physical and biomotorical parameters (body weight, BMI, body fat percentage, 10 meters speed, 30 meters speed, vertical jump, anaerobic power) of all boxers were measured at the beginning and at the end of the camp. Statistical processes of all data were analysed by SPSS 17.0 statistical package program. Normal distribution analyses were performed with the Shapiro-Wilk Test. Pre-test and post-test comparison of Body Mass Index and body weight values were analyzed by using the Wilcoxon Test and, pre-test and post-test comparison of body fat percentages, 10 m. speed, 30 m. speed, vertical jump and anaerobic power values were analyzed by using the Paired T test statistic. Significance value was taken as p <0.05.

Changes in body weight values before and after camping were x̅=63.78±14.35 kg – x̅=61.25±14.31 kg, in BMI values x̅=23.09±5.44 kg/m2 – x̅=21.86±4.45 kg/m2, in body fat percentages x̅=26.91±9.50 – x̅=25.61±9.29, in 10 m speed values x̅=3.03±0.25 – x̅=2.93±0.23 sec, in 30 m speed values x̅=6.44±0.36 – x̅=6.25±0.34 sec, in vertical jump values x̅=0.21±0.09 to x̅=0.31±0.07 m and in anaerobic power x̅=63.71±20.13 – x̅=74.47±15.48 kgm/s, significant changes were seen statistically (p <0.05).

As a result we suggest that the having a well-designed training camp can make a positive contribution on physical and biomotor parameters of national junior women boxers before an important tournament.
