Behavioural Imbalances of Swimmers
Beskrivelse: Swimming has been known since prehistoric times. Drawings from the Stone Age were found in 'the cave of swimmers' near Wadi Sore in the south-western part of Egypt. Swimming was part of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 in Athens. In 1908, the World Swimming Association, Federation International de Nutrition Amateur (FINA), was formed. Butterfly was first a variant of breaststroke, until it was accepted as a separate style in 1952. Stress, long considered alien to Indian lifestyle, is now a major health hazard. It is cutting across all socio-economic groups of population and becoming the great leveller. Not only are just high-pressure executives its key victims but they also include slum dwellers, working women, businessmen, professionals and even children. The book begins with an introduction to the swimming, identification, treatment, remedial training, behavioural imbalances, stress, frustration, pressure and conflicts. A major part of the book provides a detailed coverage of Behavioural Imbalance of Swimmers. The term for the purpose of this study denotes those swimmers who have participated in inter-college swimming competition. Identification means the act of making identical but in this context the identification means to identify the behavioural imbalances of the male college level swimmers when they swim in natural or smooth form and when they play under stressful and fearful conditions. This is ultimately responsible for Pressure, Stress, Frustration and Conflict and lastly poor performance of the swimmers. The mental make-up and dynamics are closely inter-linked with physical and physiological aspects of training. Merely higher level of skill training and physical fitness will not result into elite performance It is a form of treatment in which counter conditioning responses are reinforced in an attempt to extinguish ill symptoms of abnormal behaviour patterns or change them into normal behavioural patterns. I hope that this book will act as a very good tool for swimmers to perform better in their competition. This book will also be helpful for researchers, coaches and students.
