The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effects of Autogenic training and Progressive muscle relaxation technique on the mental skills of female subjects. We recruited 60 female subjects and assigned them into three groups i.e. AT group, PMR group and control group. The first and second groups were provided with 8-week Autogenic training and PMR interventions respectively, whereas the control group continued their general routine. All three groups were tested pre and post interventions for their mental skills by using Hardy and Nelson mental skills questionnaire. Hypotheses were tested by applying ANCOVA to the collected data at 0.05 significance level. Results revealed that only concentration ability was significantly improved with Autogenic training and PMR, whereas no significant differences were observed for other variables.
