|THE EFFECT OF TWO ACTIVE RECOVERIES IN REDUCING LACTIC ACID OF BADMINTON ATHELETES|
|badminton, recovery, jogging, massage|
Objectives: The objective of this study is to examine the effect of jogging and massage as recovery active on the change or removal of the lactic acid. Methods: The research subjects amounted to 12 men badminton athletes in Sumenep Regency. The subjects would be divided into two groups: jogging recovery group (Age 18 ± 2.09, weight 56.83 ± 6.67 kg and height 164.5 ± 6.15 cm) and massage recovery group (age 16.33 ± 1.03, weight 54.5 ± 3.27 kg and height 162.33 ± 7.76 cm). Levels of lactic acid subjects would be taken by using Accutrend Plus. Taking lactic acid levels was first performed before the research process was performed. The preliminary data were as a reference to normal circumstances. Then all subjects were given the same treatment that was a badminton match with a single system and rally point system. After the winner of the match had been known, the lactic acid of both subjects who had competed would be taken once more to see the change. And finally, the subjects would be giventreatment of recovery through jogging and massage in accordance with the group that had been determined. After that, their lactic acid was taken again. Results: The data analysis used was Independent Test of T-Test. The results showed that recovery by jogging significantly (p <0.05) lowered lactate acid levels compared with recovery by massage. Recovery active by jogging and massage could reduce lactic acid after doing exercise however recovery by jogging was able to reduced lactic acid more quickly than recovery by massage. Conclusion: The conclusion of this study was that recovery with jogging more effective to reducing lactic acid after performing and exercises than massage.
