Research dedicated to training
The Centre d’Expertise de la Performance Gilles Cometti also aims to do research, sports’ audit and engineering (feasibility studies, tests conception and validation…). In collaboration with the INSERM U887 Motricy-Plasticity laboratory, several experiments are conducted in order to improve scientific knowledge on physical training and to optimize physical conditioning. These studies are based on muscle physiology, neurophysiology and exercise physiology.
The main themes are :
- Effects of electromyostimulation on strength, jumping ability, speed and specific performance,
- Effects of several warm-up modalities on subsequent performance. Particular attention id given to the “Russian warm-up” and to the “potentiation” phenomenon,
- Neuromuscular fatigue and recovery following several types of effort,
- Effects of an aerobic training program coupled with respiratory muscles exercises on cardiovascular and respiratory systems adaptations,
