Abstract:

This study explores the impact of a 6-week hydrodynamic conditioning program on selected physiological variables among tennis athletes aged 18 to 25 in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. A total of 30 participants were divided into an experimental group (n=15) that underwent hydrodynamic training and a control group (n=15) that received no special training. The investigation specifically assesses the effect of the 6-week hydrodynamic conditioning program on resting pulse rate, systolic, and diastolic blood pressure. Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was employed to compare post-intervention scores while controlling for baseline measures, enhancing the study's internal validity. The results revealed significant improvements in resting pulse rate, systolic, and diastolic blood pressure within the experimental group compared to the control group. In the experimental group, the resting pulse rate exhibited a statistically significant decrease, indicating enhanced cardiovascular efficiency. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure also showed significant reductions, suggesting positive adaptations in vascular health. These findings highlight the potential cardiovascular benefits associated with the implementation of hydrodynamic conditioning in the training regimen of young tennis athletes.
