Abstract:

A planned, systematic and chronic training regimen will always leads to significant adaptations on cardiac functions. The heart is an involuntary organ which directly get impact by any systematic training protocol as compared to any other organ of the body, based on this the investigator is focusing on how a long distance runners and middle distance runners training protocol leads to a favorable impact on selected cardiac functional parameters. To meet the purpose the investigator has chosen (N=30) women volunteered elite athletes of each (N=15) of long distance running and middle distance running athletes between 18 to 22 years. All the volunteered elite athletes are trained by their coaches for about 7 to 9 years. The selected criterian parameters are Heart Rate at rest (HR), Stroke Volume at rest (SV), and Cardiac output at rest ( ), and they were measure by M- Mode Doppler Echocardiography with the support of qualified cardiologist. The level of significant is set at 0.05 level of assurance. The study concluded that a regular and systematic long and middle distance runners training significantly brought changes in selected variables as compared to the normal, healthy, and untrained women. Further, it is concluded that long distance running have significantly lowered heart rate at rest, and significantly enhanced stroke volume at rest and cardiac output at rest as compared to the middle distance running group. In ordered to find out the significant difference analysis of variance (ANOVA) is employed.
