The objective of the study was to compare between Pre Test and Post Test in regard to selected parasympathetic reactivity variable of male football players age ranging from 18 to 25 years. Hence, after the pre-test the vigorous football training (treatment variables) and post-test after the vigorous football training for six months were conducted to collect the data on selected parasympathetic reactivity variable namely expiratory inspiratory ratio (beats/minute). To test the effect of vigorous training on football layers the test retest design was adopted, for comparison between the data collected at pre-test and post-test, the collected data needed to be described. Hence, the mean and standard deviation (SD) were selected as descriptive statistics. Thereafter the comparison between pre-test and post-test of selected parasympathetic reactivity variables have been done by computing ‛t’ test. The drawn hypothesis was tested at 0.05 level of significance. The samples of the study were 30 (15 pre and 15 post-test). For 6 cycles per minute, the inspiration was done for 5 seconds, and expiration for 5 seconds. If cycles were not appropriately done, it was repeated again in order to get 6 complete cycles (i.e. each cycle consisting of 5 seconds inspiration following by 5 seconds expiration). At pre, and post-test expiratory inspiratory ratio (beats/ minute) have 1.31 ± 0.17 and 1.30 ± 0.19 as mean and standard deviation respectively. The calculated ‘t’ of expiratory inspiratory test (beats/minute) was 12.20 which was significantly different at 0.5 level with mean difference (MD) of 0.05 where the mean value decreased from pre-test to post-test. The selected variables collectively which demonstrated the positive effect of vigorous football training in regard to selected parasympathetic reactivity variable of male football players.Pages: 259-262 | 145 Views 7 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
