The Examination of the Heart Rate Recovery after Anaerobic Running in Soccer Players
The purpose of this study was to examine the heart rate recovery depending on anaerobic running. A total of 23 professional soccer players who were player of Turkish Super Leagues, were examined. Anaerobic Run test was applied to the soccer players and their heart rates were recorded before running, just after running, in 3rd and 6th minutes of recovery period.
Any statistical differences were not found between the heart rates before run and in 6th minute after run (p>0,05). On the other hand, there was a statistical difference between the heart rates before run, after run and in 3rd minute after run; the heart rates after run and before run; the heart rates in 3rd and 6th minutes of recovery (p<0,05). A relationship was determined between the heart rates after run, before run (r=0,457) and in 3rd minute of recovery (r=0,537) and the heart rates in 3rd and 6th minutes of recovery (r=0,629). On the other hand, no relation was found between the heart rates before run, in 3rd minute recovery (r=0,247) and in 6th minute of recovery (r=-0,004) and the heart rates just after run and in 6th minute of recovery (r=0,280) (p>0,05).
In conclusion, even if the increase of heart rate occurring after anaerobic run doesn’t completely return to normal in 3rd minute of recovery, it will supply the athlete with a suitable condition for the second loading with regard to efficient rest. It is thought that a rest over 3 minutes should be given for athletes to make the heart rate after anaerobic run return to normal.
