Influence of high physical load endurance exercises on the anthropometric parameters and health status of military personnel
Rıga Stradiņš University, Latvia
Military personnel are in high-risk group for health disorders, musculoskeletal pathology and psychological overload. We provide evaluation of the anthropometric parameters and health status of military personnel, Cadets, who have participated in ten days duration Combat training course. Combat training course is associated with life-style change – social, environmental, climate and geographical conditions, biorhythms, nutrition etc., with an increase in physical and psych emotional loads. It is characterized with transition from daily routine of military study process in National Defence academy to military exercise in external environment. Cadets faced to feeding limitation, sleeping deprivation intensive and continuous training, strict discipline etc. We provided analysis of anthropometric parameters before, and in time of Combat training course, summarized data of health statement and health problems that were fixed in the medical cards. The proper body mass supports good health capacity and we provided assessment of it. Physical fitness and body composition have adverse effect on military performance. Body composition undergoes changes during higher physical load performance. Military personnel have high risk to health, concerning impact of external and internal factors. According the review of medical cards of cadets group, we indicated main problems, which are fixed after the Combat training course.
