Basket baal is a heavy sports and tends to cause fatigue earlier to theathlete due to more energy used and more of body fluid excretion such as sweating, expiration and the increase of free radical production in the body that influence heart rate recovery after exercise. Adequate consumption of electrolyte fluid and nature antioxidant made of fruit such as tomato juice and young coconut fluid are the effective ways for heart rate recovery for the athlete. The aims of this study is to examine the effect of tomato juice and young coconut fluid consumption in heart rate recovery after boxing training. This experimental study is cross over design. All of 8 (eights) subjects (boxers) are selected and divided into two groups and consist of four boxers respectively. Group I was given tomato juice and Group II was given young coconut fluid. After washing out periods (7 days) the both groups were changed. Group I was given young coconut fluid and Group II was given tomato juice. The data were analyzed by using t-independent test and t-paired test. The result of this, tomato juice group showed significant different (p < 0,05) for heart rate recovery 1-, 2-, and 5-minute after training. On the other hand the result of t-independent test for heart rate recovery 3- and 4-minute showed no significant effect (p>0,05) before and after tomato juice treatments. But the average of heart rate recovery from 1 minute until 5 minute was smaller in tomato juice than young coconut fluid treatment. Based on data analyses, hypothesis 1 and 2 are proved that each treatment have influence for reaching heart rate recovery but tomato juice treatments faster than young coconut fluid for reaching heart rate recovery after exercise.
