indent Abstract
Wrestling is a sport which is dominantly characterized by physical strains in anaerobically lactate energy zones. The subject of this work are the parameters of wrestlers' preparedness, from the viewpoint of their success, as well as the level of metabolic and cardiac reaction of an organism, observed on the specific field test. The aim of the research is to determine the differences in the levels of specific preparedness between different competitive levels of wrestlers. The sample consists of 26 wrestlers, divided into two groups in relation to a competitive level they perform on, i.e. 10 of them perform in the First League of Serbia, while 16 perform in the Second Wrestling League of Serbia. Specific Wrestling Performance Test (SWPT) consists of two 3-minute segments, which stimulate rounds in a fight timewise, and between which there is a 30-second rest. In order to relativize the load, three different weight wrestling dummies were used, and the suplex technique as the standard throw for all examinees. General differences have been determined by MANOVA test, whereas individual differences of all variables have been determined by the t test in the function of the examined groups. Based on the results, and in the function of the models for calculating the parameters of the specific preparedness of wrestlers, the statistically significant difference (p = 0.000) of the achieved preparedness results has been determined in all three models of calculating (SWPT_TNthrows, SWPT_SJFINDEX and SWPT_NEWINDEX). Based on similar metabolic values of the tested groups, and partial differences in achieving functional values for the same given exertion (SWPT), it can be concluded that the determined differences of all three models for calculating the preparedness parameters of the examined groups are the consequence of insufficient adaptation for high load realization, which requires high pulse frequency as well as lactate concentration and the given time period.
