Blood lactate and rate of recovery as determining factor in performance of tribal athletes
Author(s): Limon Kumar Saha and Dr. Ashim Kumar Bose
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the influence of blood lactate and lactate clearance in recovery after immediate exercise on performance of tribal athlete. Seventeen (N=17) middle distance tribal athletes were selected purposively as subject for this study who belonged from Dooars of Jalpaiguri district. Their age ranged from 18 to 21 years. Performance level was measured through time in 1500mt. run. Blood lactate levels of athletes were recorded at resting condition and immediate after finish of 1500mt. run in three phases during recovery priod i.e. after 3min., 6min. and 9min. respectively utilizing finger prick blood analysis via Accutrend Plus blood lactate analyzer. Recovery rate after exercise was recorded in two phases. To mark the association of performance with lactic acid concentration in blood (resting) and recovery rate of lactic acid during recovery period after exercise, Pearson’s Product Moment correlation of coefficient was employed. No significant results were obtained in relation to blood lactate in resting condition and recovery rate after exercise with performance of middle-distance tribal athlete. Although a positive relationship existed in both phases of recovery rate of lactic acid and performance of middle-distance athletes.
