METHODS: The research was realized with hockey players of University of Matej Bel Hockey Team (UMB Hockey Team) (N.=20, average age = 22.6 years, average body height = 181.05 cm, average body height = 83.7 kg) who play in European University Hockey League. It was one-group cross experiment, in which players were randomly divided into two groups of 10 players. On the first day all players completed 2-minutes test, in which they tried to achieve as many repetitions of Burpees exercise as possible, 10 players completed test with face masks, the other 10 players were without masks. The test was repeated in a cross way two days later.
RESULTS: The probands achieved in average 2.45 repetition (P<0.01), less with face masks, the heart rate was higher by 7.5 bpm (P<0.01), which was shown by average decrease of saturation SpO2 3.63%.
