Sports performance through training and competition is a complex stimulus to which the athlete’s body responds by increasing exercise capacity, and also development of specific qualities and skills.
The sporting effort has a major impact on the increase of exercising capacity and performance, since it engages the overall energetic system in the body and it also requires great mental functions, leading thus to the development of the body’s functional reserves, to constant bio-positive adaptations of the body and to the installation of overcompensation.
The two forms of exercising capacity (aerobic and anaerobic) do not evolve on parallel curves but on divergent ones, where the growth of one of them causes the stagnation or decline of the other. This aspect draws attention on how the goals must be set for each stage of training, and always considering sensible not to work together in order to develop both explosive strength and speed or force.
When it comes to the current training process of athletes, every form of exercising capacity should be developed separately, in accordance with the proportion of energy release (either aerobic or anaerobic) in specific effort of the ice hockey game.
