Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka om visualiseringsträning kan minska nivån av upplevd stress hos kampsportare. I studien deltog 27 atleter (16-41 år) som var medlemmar i en utvald kampsportsförening lokaliserad i sydvästra Sverige. Deltagarna randomiserades in i en experimentgrupp och en kontrollgrupp där experimentgruppen erbjöds att vid tre tillfällen delta i visualiseringsträning. Det instrument som tillämpades i denna studie var K10 testet av Kessler et al. (2002) som mäter stressupplevelsen hos individer sett ur ett generellt hälsoperspektiv. Resultatet från studien visade ingen statistiskt signifikant skillnad mellan grupperna (p = 0.053). Dock påvisades en moderat effektstorlek (Cohen´s d = 0.78) vilket gör att en praktisk signifikans mellan grupperna kan diskuteras (där experimentgruppen uppvisar en lägre nivå av upplevd stress i jämförelse med kontrollgruppen). Rekommendationer från studien är att atleter uppmuntras att involvera visualisering i sitt träningsupplägg för att på så sätt potentiellt minska de upplevda stressnivåerna och på så sätt minska risken för de negativa effekterna som höga stressnivåer visats kunna generera.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate if imagery exercise can reduce the level of perceived stress among martial artist athletes. The study enrolled 27 athletes (age 16-41) who were members in a martial arts association located in southwestern Sweden. The participants were randomly divided into an experimental group and a control group in which the experimental group were offered to take part in three imagery-training classes. The instruments used were K10 test of Kessler et al. (2002), which measures self-perceived levels of stress seen from a general health perspective. The result showed no statistically significant difference between groups (p = 0.053). However, results showed a moderate effect size (Cohen's d = 0.78), which suggest that there is a practical significant between (where the experimental group showed a lower level of perceived stress in comparison with the control group). Recommendation with this study was to urge athletes to involve imagery in their training programs to thereby potentially reducing the self-perceived levels of stress and to counteract the subsequent/following negative effects that high stress levels can contribute to.
