|This study examined the effect of Mindfulness Acceptance Commitment-Physical (MAC-P) on anaerobic performance. The MAC-P specifically designed for anaerobic training, and has its validity and reliability. The study used non-randomized control group pretest-posttest design. Research instrument consisted of Wingate Test to evaluate anaerobic performance in terms of peak power, mean power and anaerobic fatigue index. Subjects were semester one Coaching Science students from Sultan Idris Education University, divided into MAC-P (n = 21), PST (n = 21) and control (n = 21) group. Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) showed significant effect of the intervention on the achievement of post anaerobic peak power [F(2, 59) = 19.18, p < 0.05] and mean power [F(2, 59) = 3.60, p < 0.05]. However, the interventions did not have significant effect on post anaerobic fatigue. In conclusion, the MAC-P has prominent effect on anaerobic performance and attempts to be an alternative towards improving anaerobic performance. This finding can be used as a reference for coaches to improve anaerobic performance among athlete.|
