Dr. Pramod Kumar Sethi and Dr. Vikram SinghAbstract:
At the elite level the mental or psychological factors affect the sportsperson’s abilities. For developing greater pressure-handling ability, we need to examine individuals who are exposed to handling risk and pressure. Stress refers to the physical, energetic state of activation in the body. It is the physical intensity level. The level of stress or activation can vary from deep sleep to intense excitement. The idea of peak activation level is that for every skill there is an optimal level of activation, a level that corresponds to a maximum performance level. The peak stress state is the level of energy and intensity that relates to an athlete's best performance level. Top achievers in sports operate in or near to their peak stress level in pressure situations. In the present research paper the 40 Indian male wrestlers in the age group of 18 to 25 years were studied on select psycho-physiological variables and their profiles were analyzed. The experimental group wrestlers (N=20) were then exposed to the Yog Nidra for 45 days and their responses were recorded on the psycho-physiological variables namely reaction time and the anticipation time (No. of early and late responses). Thus the complete pre – testing and the post training profiling for the comparative match group (N=20) as well as the experimental group was done and the outcomes were interpreted. The analysis of the present scenario of the psychological condition of the Indian male wrestlers was being done and accordingly the recommendations made for the improvement of the performance of Indian wrestlers so that they can perform better by overcoming the psychological hurdles at the elite level.Pages: 504-507 | 696 Views 15 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
