Over the decade there has been increases in the number of women participating in exercise, physical and recreational activities. This active participation of women attributes to increase demand of physical performance. It has been seen that these performances have been affect over the different phases of menstrual cycle. Fluctuation of hormones in different phases can affect the performance in different ways.
Aim: The present study aims to assess and compare the physical performance during follicular phase and luteal phase of menstrual cycle in eumenorrheic and young women.
Methodology: After the study design was formulated, ethical clearance was taken from IEC. The study was a comparative type where the physical performance was compared in follicular phase and luteal phase. The study involved 40 regularly menstruating women between the age group 18-24 years. The participants were assessed for functional and sprint performance. The comparison of mean and standard deviation of follicular phase and luteal phase was done.
Outcome Measures: Functional performance was measured by single hop test and sprint performance was measured with 30m sprint test.
Results: The functional performance of follicular phase showed 120.7±13.35cm on left side and 125.4±12.27cm on right side whereas for luteal phase it was 124.1±12.73cm on left side and 127.8±11.83cm on right side. The sprint performance of follicular phase showed 7.75±0.54sec whereas luteal phase showed 7±0.6sec.
Conclusion: The study concluded that eumenorrheic women showed better physical performance in luteal phase when compared to follicular phase. DOI: 10.22271/kheljournal.2022.v9.i2f.2488Pages: 333-336 | 298 Views 62 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
