The purpose of this study was to investigate the psychological and physiological effects of progressive relaxation and arousal on an athlete's muscle power as compared to a control protocol dependent on these variables for the successful execution of their performance. It was hypothesized that progressive relaxation would lead to a significant decrease in muscle power and a significant increase in arousal conditions as compared to control conditions.
