The aim of this study was to analyse the relationship between the type of passion, obsessive and harmonious, and two variables: the number of injuries and the stress-recovery balance. 19 Breakers (63% Bboys, 37% Bgirls) were analysed with the following instruments: The Passion Scale, the RESTQ-Sport questionnaire and the history of injuries were recorded.
Results showed no statistically significant correlation between the number of injuries neither any type of passion nor stress-recovery balance. A statistically significant correlation between harmonious passion and better overall-recovery (p<0.05) has been found. Specifically, harmonious passion relates to a high self-regulation factor (p<0.01).
Although, there was no correlation between the type of passion, stress-recovery balance and injuries, this study has shown that harmonious passion is associated with a greater number of hours of Breaking training, a high self-regulation and a full recovery.
