Effect of Rest Method on Fatigue Related Factors and Performance after Submaximal Exercise


The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of rest method on fatigue related factors and performance after submaximal exercise. Twenty seven collegians participated in this study. All subjects performed an incremental treadmill running exercise, not to be able to perform exercise more on a treadmill. Each subject was relaxed for 10 minutes in the way of rest one of the relaxing 3 ways (sitting, lying, and jogging) after submaximal exercise, and it was made to the cycling movement again. The present study shows that fatigue related factors such as lactate, ammonia, glucose, and free radical were significantly decreased after active rest (jogging). On the other hand, the antioxidant capacity shows high level. There was no change of heart rate according to the rest type during the recovery period, 10 minutes. The heart rate, lactate, ammonia, and free radical show low level in the next exercise performance after the rest of activity. On the contrary to this the antioxidant and VO2 max show high level. Also, motor performances such as VO2 max and antioxidant capacity were significantly higher at active rest than passive rest. In conclusion, active rest is to show the fatigue substance lower than that of passive rest method, it was found that the performance capabilities of the next can be improved.
