dc.description.abstract The objective of this project was to study tree effect of physical conditioning on platelet function. Twelve Ball State University undergraduate males were tested for platelet retention and platelet aggregation with collagen and adenosine diphosphate before, during and after a controlled six and one half week physical training program consisting of calisthenics and jogging. A significant increase was found in the tendency of platelets to aggregate with collagen while no change was found in aggregation with ADP or in platelet retention. It was concluded that: i) more work is necessary to verify this training effect, and ii) further work should be done considering other variables in the blood coagulation and fibrinolytic pathways in order to gain a better overall understanding of the effect of exercise on hemostasis.
