Abstract Resume

Background: The male amateur boxing rule consists of 3 rounds of 3-min interspersed with 1-min of recovery. It is considered a high intensity intermittent activity that requires
several technical and physical abilities. Despite of boxing performance depends on both aerobic and glycolytic metabolisms, commonly, elite amateur boxing athletes perform daily long term  continuous
running (>30min) which may impair strength and power abilities due concurrent training effect. The knowledge about more specific and high intensity exercises may help coaches and physical conditioners
to optimize boxing training sessions. Therefore, the present study was designed to test the cardiac and metabolic effects of a high intensity running exercise based on the official rules of
International Association of Amateur Boxing (AIBA). Methods: Nine male boxing athletes (23.04±5.02 years; 70.18±13.45 kg; 173.67±8.59 cm; BMI = 23.07±2.42) from the top level of
Brazilian Boxing National Team volunteered to participate in this study. The high intensity running exercise consisted of 3 running bouts of 3-min with 1-min of interval between bouts and was named as
“3x3x1 exercise”. During each 3-min bout the athletes run 40-m (20-m + 20-m 180º shuttle-run), as fast as possible in the attempt to perform the maximal distance running. Between each 3-min bouts the
athletes remained in a sitting position for 1-min to simulate the passive recovery according to the boxing official matches. The heart rate (HR) was monitoring continuously and the blood lactate (BL)
was assessed during the rest (before the warm-up) and 5-min after the exercise. Data are described as mean and standard deviation.
Results: The athletes covered 1888.89 ± 74.24m (Bout 1 = 668.89 ± 22.61m; Bout2 = 611.11 ± 31.80m; Bout 3 = 608.89 ± 34.80m; P<0.05), and reached their maximal HR (194 ± 9
beats.min-1). The athletes maintained their HR near to the maximal HR values more than the half of the time during the 3x3x1 exercise (Zone 1 = 0.28 ± 0.34%; Zone 2 = 2.97 ± 3.54%; Zone 3 = 7.90 ±
4.12%; Zone 4 = 32.21 ± 19.32% and Zone 5 = 56.65 ± 20.89). The HR during the passive recovery reduced in mean 42.87 ± 13.99 beats.min-1 (Bout 1 = 43.56 ± 15.41 beats.min-1; Bout 2 = 37.39 ± 12.62
beats.min-1; Bout 3 = 47.67 ± 13.95 beats.min-1). The BL starts at 0.98 ± 0.27 mmol.L-1 in rest and reached 8.22 ± 1.09 mmol.L-1 5-min post-exercise. Conclusions: The physiological
responses of a 3x3x1 exercise were similar than the physiological demands of official matches found in previous studies. The 3x3x1 exercise induces high cardiac stress and may be used in training
sessions to improve both aerobic and glycolytic metabolism. Futures studies are necessary to verify the 3x3x1 reproducibility as well its relationship with other standard physiological responses as
ventilatory thresholds and maximal oxygen consumption. The sensitivity of the 3x3x1 exercise to detect training/detraining effects is also necessary.
