Rhythmic Gymnastics in Microgravity to Improve the Human Movement Space is the theme of a project (ZER0gYMN) we have attempted to develop with rhythmic athletes using either the facilities offered by the space industry in Turin or 0g situations like parabolic flights. The immediate aim of the proposal is to evaluate the differences in the perception of sound/rhythm and the effect on performance in gymnastics engagement on Earth and in microgravity, taking advantage of the opportunity to study this particular aspect of human movement and the feeling expressed by this Olympic sport. Gymnastics is an activity that is essentially “gravitation based". We present some physical training exercises aimed at orientation education in space as a function of microgravity. Three areas/sectors have been identified: on the ground, with tools, and in the water. Exercises under earthly conditions were presented in ten gym work session.

Abstract

Rhythmic Gymnastics in Microgravity to Improve the Human Movement Space is the theme of a project (ZER0gYMN) we have attempted to develop with rhythmic athletes using either the facilities offered by the space industry in Turin or 0g situations like parabolic flights. The immediate aim of the proposal is to evaluate the differences in the perception of sound/rhythm and the effect on performance in gymnastics engagement on Earth and in microgravity, taking advantage of the opportunity to study this particular aspect of human movement and the feeling expressed by this Olympic sport. Gymnastics is an activity that is essentially “gravitation based". We present some physical training exercises aimed at orientation education in space as a function of microgravity. Three areas/sectors have been identified: on the ground, with tools, and in the water. Exercises under earthly conditions were presented in ten gym work session.
