ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of an eight-week moderate-intensity technical and resistance training on selected hematological parameters. Twenty male wrestlers participated in the study voluntarily. Participants trained six days a week after being divided into technical and resistance training groups. The first group was applied a technical training (TT) program, at 60-75% intensity of heart rate (HR) and lasting 75-90 minutes. The other group (resistance training) applied the resistance training (RT) program for the first four weeks at %60 of 1TM load, for the next four weeks at %70 of 1TM load. Blood samples were collected from participants before the training period and after 24 hours following the last training session. RBC, HGB, HCT, PLT values were analyzed to determine hematological parameters from blood samples. Statistical analysis was performed using the SPSS program. According to the results, between values before and after the training period, there was significant difference in RBC and HGB levels, while there was no significant difference in HCT and PLT levels in the TT group. Between values before and after the training period, there was no significant difference in RBC, HGB, HCT, PLT levels in RT group. As a result, it was found that eight-week technical training was more efficient significantly than resistance training (p <0.05). However, when these results were examined in practical terms, it was determined that the differences between before and after technical training programs had a low effect size.
