Abstract: In the field of sport, it could be useful to evaluate the changes in body composition and energy consumption that may occur mainly in elite athletes. (NIH Consensus Statement 1996, Gudivaka R 1999). Bioelectrical impedance is a non-invasive and rapid method for the evaluation of body water, since both in literature and in scientific evidence a close correlation was found between the variation of the distribution of water in the various body compartments (Marra M 2005, Marra M 2009) and changes in muscle strength and hence the performance-sports competitions. On the other hand, the assessment of resting energy expenditure in athletes could define more accurately the dietary requirements of athletes. Water polo is a dynamic and intermittent team sport, requiring a high anaerobic effort. In the pool, players swim from an extreme to the other of the swimming-pool and perform high-intensity actions, such as jumping, wrestling and sprinting. The aim of this study was to evaluate restin g energy expenditure and body composition in an elite water polo team national first league and to compare them with a control group. (More)
