Abstract Objectives Research has linked physiological (e.g., hormonal, affective, fatigue) outcomes to performance indicators in rugby competition, but no work has integrated and contextualised these factors within a test-match environment. We addressed this gap by monitoring 29 athletes from a training squad across eight international rugby matches. Methods Pre-match (8-9 am) measures of salivary testosterone and cortisol concentrations, sleep duration, pulse rate, muscle soreness, stress, mood...

Abstract Objectives This study examined the acute effect of small-sided-game (SSG) and resistance training sequence on neuromuscular, endocrine and mood response over a 24-h (h) period. Design Repeated measures. Methods Fourteen semi-professional soccer players performed SSG-training (4vs4 + goalkeepers; 6 × 7-min, 2-min inter-set recovery) followed by resistance training 2 h later (back-squat, Romanian deadlift, barbell-hip-thrust; 4 × 4 repetitions, 4-min inter-set recovery; 85% 1 rep-max) (SS...

Abstract Objectives To compare fixed epochs (FIXED) and rolling averages (ROLL) for quantifying worst-case scenario (‘peak’) running demands during professional soccer match-play, whilst assessing contextual influences. Design Descriptive, observational. Methods Twenty-five outfield players from an English Championship soccer club wore 10-Hz microelectromechanical systems during 28 matches. Relative total and high-speed (>5.5 m s−1) distances were averaged over fixed and rolling 60-s to 600-s ep...

Abstract Objectives This study profiled the 24 h neuromuscular, endocrine and mood responses to a single versus a double training day in soccer players. Design Repeated measures. Methods Twelve semi-professional soccer players performed small-sided-games (SSG’s; 4 vs 4 + goalkeepers; 6 × 7-min, 2-min inter-set recovery) with neuromuscular (peak-power output, PPO; jump height, JH), endocrine (salivary testosterone, cortisol), and mood measures collected before (pre) and after (0 h, +24 h). The fo...

Abstract Objectives To profile the distances covered during international women’s rugby union match-play and assess the duration-specific worst-case scenario locomotor demands over 60-s to 600-s epochs, whilst comparing the values determined by fixed epoch (FIXED) versus rolling average (ROLL) methods of worst-case scenario estimation and assessing positional influences. Design Descriptive, observational. Methods Twenty-nine international women’s rugby union players wore 10 Hz microelectromechan...

Monitoring athletes’ external load during a soccer match may be useful to predict post-match acute and residual fatigue. This estimation would allow individual adjustments to training programs to minimize injury risk, improve well-being, and restore players’ physical performance and inform the recovery process. Using a systematic review and meta-analysis of the literature, the aim is to determine which monitoring variables would be the strongest predictors of acute (immediately) and residual (up...

ABSTRACTInstruction: Effective playing time in soccer is typically < 60 min per game and while players may reposition themselves when the ball is out of play, it is likely the physical demand decre...
