La conferencia mundial de cineantropometría acoge a Fundación Cajasol Sporting


El Fundación Cajasol Sporting estuvo presente en la Conferencia Mundial de Cineantropometría. Esta trata sobre el estudio  del cuerpo humano mediante medidas y evaluaciones de su tamaño, forma, proporcionalidad, composición, maduración biológica y funciones corporales con la finalidad de entender los procesos implicados en el crecimiento, el ejercicio, la nutrición y el rendimiento deportivo.
En la Universidad Católica de Murcia se ha desarrollado la Conferencia Mundial de Cineantropometría donde se dieron cita los más prestigiosos medidores de composición corporal para conocer el avance de esta ciencia.
Y es que, la Fundación Cajasol Sporting ha estado presente en este importante congreso de la mano de su dietista-nutricionista Pablo A. López Cáceres el cual presentó dos comunicaciones sobre el trabajo que llevó a cabo la pasada temporada con las jugadoras del equipo.
De esta forma, López Cáceres pone su granito de arena para hacer más visible el fútbol femenino en el plano científico ya que son pocos los estudios publicados que muestran las características de composición corporal de las jugadoras de fútbol de élite.

Anthropometric and body composition characteristics in elite female football players

Comunicación presentada por nuestro dietista-nutricionista Pablo A. López junto a José Miguel Martínez y Aritz Urdampilleta en el Congreso Mundial de Cineantropometría celebrado entre los días 10 y 12 de julio en la Universidad Católica de Murcia. 

Trabajo realizado con la plantilla del Sporting Club de Huelva durante la temporada 2013-2014 y publicado en la revista Archivos de Medicina del Deporte.



Introduction: Unlike the male football players, women has less support economically and followers. This difference is also visible in scientific terms as they are few published studies showing the anthropometric characteristics and body composition of elite female football players (FFP).

Objective: The aim of this study is to assess the anthropometric characteristics and body composition of elite FFP.

Method: 19 FFP team first division club Sporting of Huelva were evaluated during the month of February 2014. Anthropometric measurements were taken as described in the reference manual, following the International Society of Advancement of Kinanthropometry (ISAK) with restricted profile protocol. They were always taken by the same internationally certified anthropometrist (ISAK, level 2). The technical of error in the measurement of skinfolds was inferior to 5% and for 1% in the rest of the measurements. By the anthropometry equations given in the “compendio de cineantropometría”, the body composition (body fat and active body mass) was calculated. All FFP signed informed consent.

Results: In tables 1 and 2 show the anthropometric profile and body composition of the FFP:




Conclusions: By anthropometric method we know the body composition of FFP to change their values ​​with a balanced diet. However, it still must be made more descriptive studies of anthropometric profile and body composition for athletes such as it is a determinant of their performance in the field.

Introduction: Unlike the male football players, women has less support economically and followers. This difference is also visible in scientific terms as they are few published studies showing the somatotype characteristics of elite female football players (FFP). In addition, female soccer players in Spain, although playing in the top flight, are not considered as professionals.

Objective: The aim of this study is to assess the characteristics of somatotype of elite FFP.

Method: 19 FFP team first division club Sporting of Huelva were evaluated during the month of February 2014. Anthropometric measurements were taken as described in the reference manual, following the International Society of Advancement of Kinanthropometry (ISAK). A International Certified Anthropometrist (ISAK, level 2) took the 10 variables necessary to calculate the somatotype: a) height, b) weight, c) skinfolds (subscapular, triceps, supraspinale and medial calf), d) girlths (arm flexed and tensed, and calf) and e) diameters (humerus and femur). To calculate the somatotype was determined, the three somatotype components separately (endomorphy, mesomorphy, ectomorphy), by the method of Heath-Carter. All FFP signed informed consent.

Results: Then the average somatotype of FFP is shown.


Conclusions: In the FFP of Sporting Club de Huelva there is a predominance of the mesomorph component, followed by endomorph and ectomorph. This not happens in other Major League players surveyed in 2009. Although, there are a somatotype reference to the Female Spanish first division players, it is necessary to further study this type of athletes to know their ideal somatotype according to playing position and nutritional intervention.
