Abstract: To achieve the good performance, the load and recovery are equally important. During any training, prolonged and strong contraction of a muscle leads to the well-known state of muscle fatigue. Studies in athletes have shown that muscle fatigue increases in almost direct proportion to the rate of depletion of muscle glycogen. Therefore, fatigue results mainly from inability of the contractile and metabolic processes of the muscle fibres to continue supplying the same work output. The intense prolonged muscle activity further diminishes muscle contraction. Interruption of blood flow through a contracting muscle leads to almost complete muscle fatigue within 1 or 2 minutes because of the loss of nutrient supply, especially loss of oxygen. During the training due to the increased body metabolism particularly following vigorous exercise, there will be increased deposition of lactic acid as well as metabolic waste products which leads to the further muscle fatigue. Following the main exercises, it is important to also allow time for a cooling down, to assist with removal of lactic acid and waste products of metabolism. So the researcher motivated to take up the study to find out an effective mode to reduce the lactic acid concentration, increased supply of Oxygen and essential nutrients. The researcher incorporated the Asanas and Ayurvedic massage as a mean of recovery followed by resistance training to enhance the performance of physical fitness components and physiological variables of men adults.
