The purpose of this study was to estimate the inter-day reliability of 5, 10 and 20-meter sprint time and three repetition maximum back squat strength in male hurling players. Eighteen male hurling players volunteered to participate and performed 20- meter sprint trials and a three repetition maximum back squat strength test at each test session, on three separate occasions, a minimum of 48 hours apart. Participants performed three sprints over 20-meters, including split times at 5 and 10-meters. The three repetition back squat strength test was performed after the sprint test. The results displayed acceptable levels of reliability for sprint performance times (Intra class correlation coefficient single measure range: 0.76-0.89; Coefficient of variance range: 1.0 – 2.0%) and absolute and relative three repetition maximum back squat strength (Intra class correlation coefficient single measure: 0.98; CV 0.8%). Furthermore, sprint performance times and three repetition maximum back squat strength measures estimated feasible minimum a priori sample sizes from limits of agreement (5-meter:0.01 ± 0.08 s; 10-meter:-0.01 ± 0.12; 20-meter:-0.007 ± 0.15s; three repetition maximum (kg): 1.11 ± 4.19kg; three repetition maximum (kg/BW): 0.01 ± 0.06) random error therefore showing acceptable reliability. Sprint performance over 5, 10 and 20-meters and three repetition maximum back squat strength are reliable measures in male hurling players and can be used to estimate feasible minimum a priori sample sizes for sport science research.
