Abstract

Objective: To assess anaerobic power and balance among elite indian under-19 football players.

Method: 22 Elite Indian under-19 players Football players were tested for Anaerobic power and Balance on Monark Cycle Ergometry and Neurocom Balance Master respectively.

Result: Anaerobic Peak Power (W) for professional Indian under-19 football players was 498.70, while the mean for the Anaerobic Capacity (W/Kg) was 7.75. On Balance assessment, players had maximum sway velocity on foam surface with eyes closed with a mean of 0.76 (deg/sec) followed by eyes open on a foam surface with a mean of 0.54 (deg/sec). Reaction Time of players was found to be affected most in the forward component with a mean of 0.98(deg/sec) followed by Right direction and Left back direction component with mean of 0.69 and 0.67 respectively. The players showed lack of directional control maximum in the Right component with a mean of 87.25 (deg/sec) followed by Forward and Left components with mean of 86.89 and 81.10 respectively.

Conclusion: Elite Indian under-19 players Football players were found to have low Anaerobic power and capacity with their reaction time and directional control affected on the dominant leg side.
