Objective To examine the effects of sport drink (Pocari Sweat) on some Functional variables for soccer players during aerobic work with a progressive intensity. Methods Twenty two male soccer players were selected for this study and were assigned to two groups: the first group consumed water and second group consumed sport drink during aerobic work with a progressive intensity, the Functional variables was measured before and after the physical effort, the Functional variables included heart rate, systolic, diastolic blood pressure, and blood electrolytes (Sodium and Potassium). The researchers used SPSS to analyze the data by using the style of (Analysis of Covariance). The results showed for analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) there were statistically significant differences at level of 0.05 between groups (water, sport drink) in the all functional variables except systolic blood pressure in favor of the second group. Conclusions The aerobic work with a progressive intensity has made a change in the value of heart rate, blood pressure and blood electrolyte (Sodium and potassium) comparing to the rest time. There is statistical significant different in these values in favor of the group which have taken sports drink.
