Abstract

Anaerobic physical activity is a high physical activity because the muscles contract in anaerobic conditions. The energy used by ATP through the process of anaerobic glycolysis tends to produce more lactic acid.This, study aims to determine the effect of massage in reducing lactic acid levels after anaerobic exercise. Research on experimental studies using the Experimental Pre and Post- test design.Student subjects, male, aged 19-20 years, amounted to 16 people, divided into 2 groups, anaerobic exercise group without massage and a anaerobic group treat with combine massage. Examination of lactic acid is carried out after anaerobic physical activity which is 200 m run. Data were analyzed statistically using t test. We found that lactic acid levels after anaerobic physical activity were lower in the combination massage anaerobic exercise group than the non-massage anaerobic exercise group. Massage can reduce lactic acid levels after anaerobic physical activity.
