Post exercise recovery occurs after the cessation of exercise and it is related to the removal of metabolic by-product, the replenishment of energy store, the initiation of tissue repair. The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of active (low intensity running and static stretching) and passive recovery (supine lying position) on the physiological variables namely heart rate, respiratory rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure among hockey players. Total 10 male intervarsity hockey players of 18 to 23 years old from L.N.I.P.E Gwalior (M.P), (5 for each group) were selected as subjects for this study. The physiological variables were measured with the following procedure: respiratory rate were measured manually from thoracic region (breath/minutes), heart rate with heart rate monitor (beat/ minutes) and blood pressure with automatic Sphygmomanometer. To determine the difference of resting heart rate and diastolic blood pressure among hockey players analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) test was employed and the significant level was set at 0.05. The result of the data indicated that there was no significant difference on respiratory rate, heart rate and blood pressure between active and passive recovery among hockey players.
