Using Muslim clothing for sports
on women has been widely used. There is assumption that sports performance with
covered Muslim clothing will reduce achievement and speed of fatigue. This research
will prove whether such opinion is correct. At the beginning of this study,
there are only two indicators studied were lactate and glucose blood.
Girls group with open sportswear (K1)
compared with the group closed clothes (Muslim clothing: K2) with n each group
was 7 people. Both groups are measured lactate and blood glucose before and
after exercise (immediately after
physical activity), with a sub maximal load for 5 minutes using Ergocycle.
The results showed an increase in
body temperature (C o) pre-post-K1: 0.9142 ± 0.260, K2: 1.7285 ±
0.636, a decrease of blood glucose (mg /dl) pre-post; K1 L 15.000 ± 9.933, K2 :
26.857 ± 21.248, an increase in blood lactate (m Mol / l) K1: 6.571 ± 2.537,
K2: 6.357 ± 4.940
Changes in blood lactate for open
sportswear group (K1) compared with group closed clothes (K2) there was no
significant difference p: 0.460. Changes in blood glucose (K1) compared with K2
also no significant difference p: 0.108. Meanwhile, the increase in body
temperature by wearing Muslim clothing after physical activity higher than
regular sports clothes (p: 0.008). More closed sportswear can be recommended in
sports that require a relatively short time.
