Title : Nutritional Status And Hydration Status of Pencak Silat Athletes In The Training Unit of Cirebon District, West Java, Indonesia

Abstract :

The optimal amount of nutrients consumed will determine the nutritional status of athletes. Nutrients have a role as an energy source, for the growth of muscle tissue and also support the body's immune system, and play a role in metabolic processes in the body. Nutritional status can support athlete performance. One of the nutrients that play a role in supporting the performance of athletes is fluid which functions to maintain a stable body temperature and maintain acid-base balance in the body. When athletes are dehydrated, they will become dehydrated. Dehydration can not only reduce the performance of athletes, but is also dangerous for the survival of athletes. The aim of the study was to analyze the relationship between nutritional status and hydration status. This type of research is a quantitative research with a cross sectional study design. The research was conducted in the sports building of Sumber Sub-district, Cirebon District, West Java, Indonesia. The research sample was all pencak silat athletes at the coaching stage as many as 30 athletes. The results showed that most of the pencak silat athletes were male (66.7%). The age of the athletes ranged from 16 to 22 years and most of the athletes were less than 19 years old (73.3%). Most athletes have normal nutritional status (76.7%). Some athletes are mildly dehydrated after training (50%). Based on Spearman Rank correlation analysis, it is known that nutritional status is not related to hydration status (p=0.703).
