Analysis of high intensity activity in Premier League soccer.
TLDR
The results of the present study indicate that high intensity activity in elite soccer match-play is influenced by both playing position and previous activity in the game, and these activity patterns are also dependant upon success of the team.
Match-to-match variability of high-speed activities in premier league soccer.
TLDR
The findings of the present study indicate that match-to-match variability in performance characteristics of elite soccer players is high, and inherent variability means that research requires large sample sizes in order to detect real systematic changes inperformance characteristics.
Monitoring Athlete Training Loads: Consensus Statement.
TLDR
This consensus statement brings together the key findings and recommendations from a conference on monitoring Athlete Training Loads in a shared conceptual framework for use by coaches, sport-science and -medicine staff, and other related professionals who have an interest in monitoring athlete training loads.
High-intensity interval running is perceived to be more enjoyable than moderate-intensity continuous exercise: Implications for exercise adherence
TLDR
The greater enjoyment associated with high-intensity interval running may be relevant for improving exercise adherence, since running is a low-cost exercise intervention requiring no exercise equipment and similar relative exercise intensities have previously induced health benefits in patient populations.
Cold water immersion and recovery from strenuous exercise: a meta-analysis
TLDR
Exercise will be subdivided into two categories: ‘eccentric exercise’ that refers to the stress caused from exercise incorporating high mechanical stress (eg, eccentric contractions) and ‘high-intensity exercise” that referring to stress causing from exercise with a high metabolic cost as well as some elements of eccentric muscle contractions.
Integrating different tracking systems in football: multiple camera semi-automatic system, local position measurement and GPS technologies
TLDR
Interchangeability of the different tracking systems is possible with the provided equations, but care is required given their moderate typical error of the estimate.
Monitoring Fatigue During the In-Season Competitive Phase in Elite Soccer Players.
TLDR
Perceived ratings of fatigue and Ln rMSSD were sensitive to daily fluctuations in THIR distance in a sample of elite soccer players and show promise as simple, noninvasive assessments of fatigue status in elite football players during a short in-season competitive phase.
Applied Physiology of Female Soccer: An Update
TLDR
Reasons for the increased prevalence of anterior cruciate ligament injuries in females (2–6 times greater than males) are discussed, with anatomical, biomechanical loading and neuromuscular activation differences being cited in the literature.
Assessment of vitamin D concentration in non-supplemented professional athletes and healthy adults during the winter months in the UK: implications for skeletal muscle function
TLDR
The current data supports previous findings that athletes living at Northerly latitudes (UK = 53° N) exhibit inadequate vitamin D concentrations and suggests that inadequateitamin D concentration is detrimental to musculoskeletal performance in athletes.
