Abstract

The goal of this study is to analyze the effect of regular practice of autogenic training (AT) on lung capacity, subjective vitality and competitive anxiety. We have selected a sample of size n- 18. Voluntary athletes were randomly distributed in two groups: the control (n-9) and the experimental group (n-9); all of them practiced autogenic training for 6 weeks. Pre and postintervention spirometry measurements were conducted, and the values of peak expiratory flow (PEF), forced expiratory volume at the end of the first second (FEV1) were registered; additionally, values of Subjective Vitality (SVS) and Competitive Anxiety (CSAI-2) were obtained. A significant improvement (p=0.001) of Subjective Vitality and Competitive Anxiety (self-confidence dimension) was observed; however, the rest of the variables under study were unaffected. The regular practice of autogenic training could be useful to improve some of the parameters associated with sport performance.
