Abstract

University entrants are examined by medical commissions and referred to the academic health groups, albeit the valid examination protocols are free of physiological test data including the stress tolerance rates. The study was designed to find physiological criteria for individualized heart rate and pace control in women’s aerobics practices. The integrated tests under the study included the psychological, psycho-physiological and blood lactate tests. Sampled for the study were the 17-20 year-old (18±1.5 of average) female students from the main health group trained in academic aerobics groups. The three-stage tests included the physical fitness tests followed by 20-25-min varied heart rate and pace aerobics practices. The trainees were tested by the following three pace levels: S (slow) pace with the heart rate of 115-125 beats per min; M (medium) pace with the heart rate of 125-140 beats per min; and F (fast) pace with the heart rate of 140-160 beats per min.; and F (fast) pace with the heart rate of 140-160 beats per min. We also tested effects of the varied-heart rate and pace physical practices with/ without musical illustrations. The aerobic varied- heart rate and pace practices were tested with multisided positive effects on the psycho-physiological and electroencephalographic test rates versus the background test rates. The combined physiological state versus performance tests were found beneficial for the training workload management in the initial training stage, with the tests giving the means to track progress and timely adjust/ individualize the training process as required by the training process goals and requirements.
