The skijumpers 100 - 400m runners, jumpers and throwers formed the fourth group of events: power events. Based on the correlation coefficients between various parameters it is suggested that the neuromuscular and anaerobic determinants of physical performance capacity are opposite characteristics of aerobic performance capacity both at whole body level and at muscle tissue level. ...
