The claims of any individual in any kind of activity can be realized only if his actions aimed at achieving a particular goal are based on the knowledge of the laws of nature, or at least do not contradict them. Human sports activities cannot be an exception to this rule. And the only thing in which the modern theory of sports can be based on is the systemic laws of development and adaptation of the human body [2, 4, 5, 6, 7].
The current ideas about adaptation are based on: the theory of the reflex arc by R. Descartes (1596-1650); the absurd notion of the constancy of the “internal environment” of the body by C. Bernard (1813-1878) and W. Cannon (1871-1945); an illiterate idea that stress is the only non-specific reaction of the body and that it is stress that is the starting factor of the adaptation process (G. Selye, 1936, 1958). At the same time, the fundamental works on physiology by I. M. Sechenov, A. A. Ukhtomsky, I. P. Pavlov, P. K. Anokhin, K. Kh. Waddington, L. Kh. Garkavi, E. B. Kvakina, M A. Ukolova, P. D. Gorizontova, S. E. Pavlov and many others are ignored by many scientists. Продолжить чтение
