The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of sports massage in the recovery period after maximal exercise on heart rate(HR), oxygen uptake(OU), and blood lactate(BL) of ssireum players. The participants of this study were consisted of 24 ssireum players in university team(UT) and business team(BT). The first experiment had a rest recovery period for 20 minutes after the maximal exercise, and the second experiment gave a sports massage was performed the order of abdominal, waist and lower legs in a prone position for 20 minutes. The interaction effects of massage treatment and recovery period in HR showed a higher recovery ability in both the UT and BT when the massage treatment was given 10 minutes after recovery than when it was not given. The main effects of recovery period showed in all variables of HR, OU, and BL. The main effects of BL on massage treatment was significant low in both the UT and BT when the massage was given. And, the main effects of OU was significantly lower only in the BT. In conclusion, compared sports massage treatment on ssireum players after maximal exercise positively affected the recovery mechanism of HR, OU, and BL than the rest recovery method.
