Investigation of the Relation between Core Muscle Strength, Durability and Reaction Performance for Swimmers

Türker Bıyıklı


Investigation of the relation between reaction time performances and core muscle strength and durability of the swimmers is aimed in the research. 21 elite male sportsmen with 21,92 ± 5,03 years of age average, 174,14± 4,27 cm of length average and 75,02 ± 6,61 kg of body weight from College swimming team participate the research. 

Right-left hands audio and visual reaction times and plank and side plank performance values of the sportsmen are received. The data achieved provides minimum and maximum values, average and standard deviation values. Moreover Pearson correlation test is applied to determine the relation between the variants. According to the findings of the research, medium-level positive relation is detected between right hand visual reactions and plank measurement values, and poor-level positive relation is detected between right hand audio reactions of the swimmers (r=,692, p<,021; r=,277, p<,039).

In conclusion, relation is detected between core muscle strength and durability and visual and audio right hand reaction time. It may be stated that development of core muscle strength and durability may improve reaction time.
