The Scientific Basis for High-Intensity Interval Training
TLDR
It seems that, for athletes who are already trained, improvements in endurance performance can be achieved only through high-intensity interval training (HIT) and investigation into the optimal HIT programme for eliciting performance enhancements in highly trained athletes is required. Expand
Physical demands of professional rugby league training and competition using microtechnology.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that absolute distances covered during professional rugby league matches are greater for outside backs, while the collision and repeated high-intensity effort demands are higher for hit-up forwards and wide-running forwards. Expand
Accuracy of SRM and power tap power monitoring systems for bicycling.
TLDR
When operated according to manufacturers instructions, both SRM and PT offer the coach, athlete, and sport scientist the ability to accurately monitor power output in the lab and the field. Expand
The relationship between plasma lactate parameters, Wpeak and 1-h cycling performance in women.
TLDR
It was concluded that plasma lactate parameters and W(peak) provide better indices of endurance performance than peak VO(2) and that, of the six descriptors of lactate increase measured in this study, LT(D) is most strongly related to 1-h cycling performance in trained, female cyclists. Expand
The effects of strength training on endurance performance and muscle characteristics.
TLDR
The present data suggest that increased leg strength does not improve cycle endurance performance in endurance-trained, female cyclists. Expand
Validity and reliability of GPS for measuring distance travelled in field-based team sports
TLDR
Path linearity and movement intensity appear to affect GPS distance accuracy via inherent positioning errors, update rate, and conditions of use; reliability decreases with movement intensity. Expand
Interval training program optimization in highly trained endurance cyclists.
TLDR
The present data confirm prior research, in that repeated supramaximal HIT can significantly improve 40-km time trial performance, and it is shown that when HIT incorporates P(max) as the interval intensity and 60% of T(max). Expand
Match Analysis and the Physiological Demands of Australian Football
TLDR
Establishing the reliability of distance and velocity-derived GPS data in highly specific game-related activities is needed and once achieved, GPS data have the potential to accurately inform coaches of the position-specific demands on their players and to drive the development of training practices that reflect the changing demands of the game. Expand
Muscle metabolism during sprint exercise in man: influence of sprint training.
TLDR
Data demonstrate that sprint training may have enhanced muscle oxidative but not glycolytic capacity and that Glycogen degradation during sprint exercise was unaffected by sprint training. Expand
Applied Sport Science of Rugby League
TLDR
It is highlighted that preparing players based on the average demands of competition is likely to leave them underprepared for the most demanding passages of play, and coaches should incorporate drills that replicate the most intense repeated high-intensity demanding of competition in order to prepare players for the worst-case scenarios expected during match-play.
