Comparison of physiological responses to an incremental running test on treadmill, natural grass, and synthetic turf in young soccer players.


This study aimed to compare the physiological responses to a running test often used to assess lactate thresholds in soccer players when performed with an identical protocol on treadmill (Tr), natural grass (Nat), and synthetic turf (Synt). Eighteen young soccer players (mean +/- SD: age, 17.4 +/- 0.8 years; body mass, 66.2 +/- 6.7 kg; height, 175.8 +/- 5.7… (More)
