Brief Summary:
The aim of this study is to compare these three different recovery methods following a single bout high-intensity interval exercise program with each other in terms of blood lactate clearance, muscle flexibility, muscle strength and endurance.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Recovery Methods Exercise Training Other: Active Recovery Group Other: Self-Massage with Foam Roller Group Other: Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
It is very important to choose the most effective recovery method for the athletes in training for their next training/competition. The recovery period is very significant in terms of removal of blood lactate and body dynamics as soon as they return to their original state and achieve high performance. Neither neuromuscular electrical stimulation, low-intensity aerobic exercise, self-massage with foam roller methods, which have been proven their effectiveness in the literature, have been compared with each other.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Active Recovery Group
Participants in this group will exercise for 15 minutes, for a range of 65 to 70% of the maximum heart rate.
Other: Active Recovery Group
Participants in this group will exercise for 15 minutes, for a range of 65 to 70% of the maximum heart rate as a recovery method following a single bout high-intensity interval exercise program

Experimental: Self-Massage with Foam Roller Group
This group will perform 15 minutes self-massage with foam roller following the exercise session.
Other: Self-Massage with Foam Roller Group
This group will perform 15 minutes self-massage with foam roller following the exercise session as a recovery method following a single bout high-intensity interval exercise program.

Experimental: Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation
Participants of this group will be applied electrical stimulation on quadriceps femoris and hamstring muscles for 15 minutes while they are comfortable lying position.
Other: Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation
Participants of this group will be applied electrical stimulation on quadriceps femoris and hamstring muscles for 15 minutes while they are comfortable lying position as a recovery method following a single bout high-intensity interval exercise program.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Blood Lactate change [ Time Frame: change from baseline and 20. minutes of recovery ]
    blood lactate concentration measurement


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Quadriceps and Hamstring Muscle Strength [ Time Frame: baseline and 1. hour ]
    Quadriceps and Hamstring Muscle Strength assessment with hand held dynamometer for left and right

  2. Squat Endurance Test [ Time Frame: baseline and 1. hour ]
    Squat endurance capacity assessment will done with 1 Repeat Maximum 60%

  3. sit and reach test [ Time Frame: baseline and 1. hour ]
    Hamstring Flexibility assessment will done with sit and reach test and will noted as centimeter
