Without understanding the demands imposed on soccer players at various levels and age groups makes it very difficult to ensure coaching methods are having the correct impact on development of the player. ISSPF lecturers will yet again highlight the research in the area of modern testing & player monitoring strategies with the aim of then being able to apply the correct training stimulus & further justify coaching methodologies to maximise performance & reduce the risk of injury.
Discover the impact of Biochemical Markers in Soccer Player Monitoring and the importance of tracking athletes to improve performance.
The yearly training planning in soccer involves three different training periods: preparation, competition and transition.
The aim of the present investigation was to analyse the association between physical fitness profiles, playing positions and the profile relationships between training output amongst elite professional soccer players.
Soccer can be characterised as an intermittent sport, with “repeated bouts of high-intensity running interspersed with periods of rest or low-intensity running”
The main androgen, testosterone, affects a variety of parameters such as body composition, muscle metabolism and function, protein synthesis, and muscle mass.18,23 These parameters are related with the ability to perform efficiently during exercise.23,35,39.
The routine use of player-tracking devices to monitor training and competition loads has become standard practice in many elite international and professional team sports(Cummins, Orr, O’Connor, & West, 2013). Technologies such as global positioning system (GPS), local position measurement (LPM) and camera-based visual recognition systems are commonly used to assess competition demands and determine individual “work rates” (Polglaze, Dawson, & Peeling, 2016).
