Investigation of Blood Hormone and Respiratory Parameters in Active and Passive Tolerance Period after Anaerobic Test in Football Players

Betül Akyol, Serdar Şerare


The aim of the study was to determine the changes in blood hormone and respiratory parameters in recovery phases. 28 voluntary men participated in the study, with an average age of 19.75±1.61 years and playing active football during the league season. Wingate Anaerobic Power Test and Respiratory Function Test (RFT) were applied to the subjects who were randomly divided into two groups, active and passive group. Blood samples were collected from and RFT was applied to all subjects before and after the test. Cortisol hormone, Partial Oxygen Pressure (PO2), Partial Carbon Dioxide Pressure (PCO2), lactic acid (LA) values were obtanied with datas taken from blood samples. The forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume (FEV1), and rate of 1. Second of forced expiratory volume to the forced vital capacity (FEV1 / FVC) were measured by the PFT test. SPSS 24.0 program was used for statistical evaluation of the data. As a result; both 5-minute active and passive recovery methods did not reduce the cortisol ratio, but continued to increase in minute increments. In terms of PO2, passive recovery was found to be a more effective method than active recovery. 5 minutes of active and passive recovery did not reduce LA level and did not affect each other significantly. FVC and FEV1 values were found to be higher in the active recovery group than in the passive recovery group at the onset of AT recovery. Active recovery was found to have positive effects on vital capacity FVC and FEV1.
