J Strength Cond Res 23(1): 163-169, 2009-The purpose of the study was to examine the relationships among aerobic fitness, anaerobic capacity, and performance indices of 2 different repeated sprint test (RST) protocols in a group of 33 elite adolescent soccer players (age range 16-18 years). All participants performed 4 tests: an aerobic…

Relationship Between Different Measures of Aerobic Fitness and Repeated-Sprint Ability in Elite Soccer Players

The results of this study demonstrated that RSA is more strongly correlated with vOBLA and v&OV0312;o2max than the more commonly measured &OV03 12;o 2max.

Relationships among repeated sprint tests and aerobic fitness in adolescent tennis players

It seems that the involvement of the aerobic system is more significant in the long than in the short repetition RST protocol, while the PD of the two RST protocols is unchanged.

Relationship Among Repeated Ability Tests with Aerobic Power and Blood Lactate in Soccer

The purpose of the present study was to determine the relationships between the repeated sprints ability (RSA) or repeated dribbling ability ( RDA) with aerobic power and blood lactate of Malaysian University soccer players.

Relationships Among Two Repeated Activity Tests and Aerobic Fitness of Volleyball Players

The findings suggest that a selection of repeated activity test protocols should acknowledge the specific technique used in the sport, and that a distinct RJT, rather than the classic RST, is more appropriate for assessing the anaerobic capabilities of volleyball players.

Relationship between Repeated Sprint Ability and Aerobic Fitness in College Volleyball Players

The results of this study demonstrated that high VO 2max as well as VT has an important contribution to performance during repeated-sprint efforts and suggest that training practices for the development of aerobic components may improve also RSA.

Aerobic and anaerobic determinants of repeated sprint ability in team sports athletes

Aerobic fitness is an important factor influencing the ability to resist fatigue during RSA exercise, and the usefulness of MASRT, in contrast to WingT, as a specific anaerobic testing procedure to identify theAnaerobic energy system contribution during RSA is highlighted.

Does Maturity Status Affect The Relationship Between Anaerobic Speed Reserve And Multiple Sprints Sets Performance in Young Soccer Players?

Findings could help coaches and strength and conditioning professionals to better understand how the relationship between ASR and RSS evolve across the maturity and may be considered, therefore, useful in youth soccer selection/training process.

The Influence of Aerobic Power on Repeated Anaerobic Exercise in Junior Soccer Players

The level of VO2max does not influence the performance indices in the RAST in elite junior soccer players, and it is possible that the modification of anaerobic test protocol or a more heterogeneous study group would influence the results.

Correlation between explosive strength, aerobic power and repeated sprint ability in elite basketball players.

CMJ is a predictor of RSA in elitebasketball players and coaches and strength and conditioning professionals should devote additional time for explosive strength development in elite basketball players during preparatory period to enhance RSA performance.


While aerobic and anaerobic capabilities were significantly higher in normal weight children, strong relationships were found between aerobic fitness and RST indices in both normal and overweight children.



Correlation between Tests of Running Repeated Sprint Ability and Anaerobic Capacity by Wingate Cycling in Multi-Sprint Sports Athletes

The 30 s Wingate cycling (cWG) test is a popular test of anaerobic capacity. The test is highly correlated with short, high-intensity performance but may have limitations when assessing

The relationship between repeated sprint ability and the aerobic and anaerobic energy systems.

Comparison of Sprint and Run Times with Performance on the Wingate Anaerobic Test

Results of this study indicate that the Wingate anaerobic test is only a moderate predictor of dash or run times, and that the influence of age and weight on the WAnT scores is higher when age is adjusted and higher when adjusted for body weight.

The relationship between aerobic fitness and both power output and subsequent recovery during maximal intermittent exercise.

An evaluation of tests of anaerobic power.

The data suggest that both the Wingate and isokinetic endurance tests represent valid laboratory tests for evaluating high-intensity, short-term exercise in which the muscle is primarily dependent upon anaerobic processes for energy release.

Prediction of maximal oxygen uptake from a 20-m shuttle run as measured directly in runners and squash players

Abstract The aim of this study was to assess the validity of the multistage shuttle run test in predicting maximal oxygen uptake (VO 2 max) in athletes trained in sports with different physical

A multi-stage shuttle run as a predictor of running performance and maximal oxygen uptake in adults.

The results confirm that the 20-MST is a valid field test of cardio-respiratory endurance and suggest that it can additionally be used to predict relative running performance over 10 km.

Physiology of Soccer

An update on the physiology of soccer players and referees, and relevant physiological tests is provided, and examples of effective strength- and endurance-training programmes to improve on-field performance are given.

The Relationship Between Aerobic Fitness and Recovery from High Intensity Intermittent Exercise

The literature suggests that aerobic fitness enhances recovery from high intensity intermittent exercise through increased aerobic response, improved lactate removal and enhanced PCr regeneration.

Human muscle metabolism during intermittent maximal exercise.

In face of a considerable reduction in the contribution of anaerobic glycogenolysis to ATP production, power output was supported by energy that was mainly derived from PCr degradation and an increased aerobic metabolism.
