Abstract
In Indonesia, Life Kinetic training in improving the cognitive function of football athletes is rarely limited. Therefore, football athletes are often not focused on doing their duties. Exercises in developing countries are more varied in leading to multi-tasking exercises through Life Kinetic training, then the performance of athletes especially in the function of cognition is better. This study involved 40 football athletes of UPI. Those 40 subject were divided into two groups which obtained the experimental group and the control group. The experimental group was given the Life Kinetic training, while the control group was given the treatment of conventional exercise. The instrument to measure the cognitive function used Concentration Grid Test and Advanced Progressive Matrices Test. The research design used a pretest-posttest control group design. The data analysis technique used Multivariate Test. The results of the study showed that there was a significant effect of Life Kinetic training on the improvement of cognitive functions especially in the concentration and intelligence of football athletes. There was a different effect of cognitive functions between athletes trained by Life Kinetic training and conventional training. Life Kinetic training is better than conventional training in improving the cognitive functions of football athletes.
