Comparison between stretching and autogenic relaxation techniques on lactic acid concentration of football players
Author(s): Dr. Gurvir Singh and Dr. Baljeet Singh
Present study was conducted to find out the best technique between stretching relaxation technique and autogenic relaxation technique. The sample of 20 football players was selected from the colleges of Punjabi University, Patiala. After the selection of 20 subjects, whose age ranged from 17 to 25 years old. These athletes had undergone with 20 minute running on treadmill then lactic acid concentration was immediately observed. These athletes divided into two groups 10 players in each group. After 20 days through the 20 minute treadmill running, pre and post-test had been conducted to observe the concentration of lactic acid. In order to find out the significant mean difference of experimental groups t-test was applied to find out the significant difference between two groups. It was clearly found that stretching relaxation technique is better than autogenic relaxation technique because in stretching relaxation technique, there was significant difference but in case of autogenic relaxation technique, difference was found to be insignificant.
