PURPOSE The purpose of this investigation was to determine the reliability of the 30-15 Intermittent Fitness Test (30-15(IFT)) in semiprofessional soccer players. METHODS Fourteen male semiprofessional soccer players performed the 30-1(IFT) on 2 occasions separated by 7 d. Reliability was assessed by intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC), typical error(More)
The aim of the study was to determine the between-session reliability of isometric mid-thigh pull (IMTP) kinetics and maximal weight lifted during the power clean (PC) in male youth soccer players, and to identify the smallest detectable differences between sessions. Thirteen male youth soccer players (age: 16.7 ± 0.5 years, height: 1.80 ± 0.08 m, mass:(More)
Various thresholds have been used to identify the onset of contraction during isometric mid-thigh pull (IMTP) however, no agreed onset threshold exists for this assessment. The purpose of this study was to compare relative body weight (BW) and arbitrary onset thresholds to a criterion onset threshold 5 SD of BW for IMTP force-time variables; force at each(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the within-session reliability of bilateral and unilateral stance isometric mid-thigh pull (IMTP) force-time characteristics including peak force (PF), relative PF and impulse at time bands (0-100, 0-200, 0-250 and 0-300 ms); and to compare isometric force-time characteristics between right and left and(More)
PURPOSE Skeletal-muscle function can be evaluated using force-times curves generated via the isometric midthigh pull (IMTP). Various sampling frequencies (500-1000 Hz) have been used for IMTP assessments; however, no research has investigated the influence of sampling frequency on IMTP kinetics. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the(More)
