Existing procedures for the simulation of soccer match play fail to incorporate multidirectional and repeated-sprint activities, even though these movements are considered fundamental to match play. In the current study, selected physiological and performance responses were assessed during an adapted version of an existing soccer simulation protocol. Mean heart rates of 163 ± 14 beats·min–1, mean blood lactates of 4.9 ± 2.3 mmol·L–1 and decrements in single-sprint and repeated-sprint performances were observed. The presented adaptations to an existing soccer simulation protocol better reflect the movement characteristics as well as the physiological and performance responses of soccer match play.

Development and validation of a novel movement screen to predict lower extremity injury in male youth soccer players Read, Paul (Cardiff Metropolitan University, 2016)Lower extremity non-contact injuries are common in male youth soccer players. Altered neuromuscular control defined as muscle strength, power or activation patterns that lead to increased joint loads has been suggested as ...
