Purpose The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of respiratory muscle training on lung function and repeated sprint ability in futsal players.
Methods Twenty-four male futsal players from Chulalongkorn University futsal club aged 18-45 years were randomized into 2 groups: control group (CG; n=12) and training group (TG; n=12). The both CG and TG group was required to complete protocol with respiratory muscle training (no intensity in CG group) and repeated sprint ability for a period of 6 weeks, 3 times a week. The dependent variables between pre-test and post-test were analyzed by a paired t-test. Independent t-test was used to compare the variables between groups. Differences were considered to be significant at p<.05.
Results After six weeks of respiratory muscle training, the FVC and MEP had significantly higher than the pre-test values (p<.05). In addition, the MVV, MIP were increased (p<0.05) and lactic acid level and sprint time were decreased (p<0.05) when compared to pre-test and CG group. Moreover, the peak power of TG group was significantly higher than that of CG group (p<.05).
Conclusion Respiratory muscle training can improve lung functions and repeated sprint ability in futsal players
