This study determined whether external workload could be anticipated during 5 vs. 5 games-based drills in basketball. Thirteen semi-professional, male basketball players were monitored during 5 vs. 5 training drills across the season. External workload was determined using PlayerLoad™ (AU∙min−1). The reference workload for each drill was calculated across all sessions, using bootstrapping. The bootstrap mean workload and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were then calculated for session 1, sessions 1–2, and continued for remaining sessions (1–3, 1–4, etc.), and were compared with those of the reference workload. The minimum sessions to anticipate workload for each drill was identified when the first normative value fell within ±5% or ±10% of the reference workload 95% CI. The minimum sessions were then tested to determine the accuracy to which workload could be anticipated. Three to four sessions were needed to anticipate workload within ±5%, while 2–3 sessions were needed to anticipate workload within ±10%. External workload was anticipated in 0–55% of future sessions using an error range of ±5%, and in 58–89% of sessions using an error range of ±10%. External workload during 5 vs. 5 games-based drills can be anticipated in most sessions using normative values established during a short-term monitoring period with an error range of ±10%.

PURPOSE: To quantify and compare external and internal game workloads according to contextual factors (game outcome, game location, and score-line). METHODS: Starting semiprofessional, male basketball players were monitored during 19 games. External (PlayerLoad™ and inertial movement analysis variables) and internal (summated-heart-rate-zones and rating of perceived exertion [RPE]) workload variables were collected for all games. Linear mixed-effect models and effect sizes were used to compare w...

The aim of this study was to compare the data obtained using microsensor technology in 2 types of 5vs5 training games—the regular-stop game (RSG) and the no-stop game (NSG)—and in match-play (MP) in elite basketball. Sixteen top-level basketball players were monitored during pre- and in-season periods (10 weeks). The variables included: player load, accelerations (ACC), decelerations (DEC), changes of direction (CoD), and jumps (JUMP)—all in both total (t) and high-intensity (h) relative values ...

Abstract Objectives To assess the validity of the Polar Team Pro Sensor for measuring speed and distance indoors during continuous locomotive and change-of-direction tasks at low, medium, and high intensities. Design Descriptive validation study. Methods 26 recreationally-active participants (age: 32.2 ± 11.0 yr; stature: 173.3 ± 9.9 cm; body mass: 74.2 ± 16.2 kg) completed three trials of low- (walking speed), medium- (jogging speed), and high-intensity (maximal sprinting speed) continuous loco...

An understanding of basketball physical demands during official matches is fundamental for designing specific training, tactical and strategic plans as well as recovery methods during congested fixture periods. Such assessments can be performed using wearable indoor time motion tracking systems. The purpose of this study was to analyze the time-motion profile of under 18-years of age (U’18) basketball players and compare their physical demands in relation to team ranking, playing position, match...

Abstract Objectives To evaluate external and internal training load (TL) and hormonal responses in basketball 3-versus-3 small-sided games (SSGs). Design Randomized repeated-measures study. Methods Twelve male basketball players participated to four 3-versus-3 SSGs characterized by different tactical tasks (offensive; defensive) and training regimes (long-intermittent: three 4-min bouts with 2′ rest in between; short-intermittent: six 2-min bouts with 1′ rest in between). Variables measured were...

The National Basketball Association (NBA) has an extremely demanding competition schedule, requiring its athletes to compete in 82 regular-season games over a 6-mo period (∼3.4 games/wk). Despite the demanding schedule and high value of athletes, there is little public information on the specific game and training demands required to compete in the NBA. Although provisions in the NBA collective-bargaining agreement allow for research designed to improve player health and broaden medical knowledg...

Exercise is a stressor that induces various psychophysiological responses, which mediate cellular adaptations in many organ systems. To maximize this adaptive response, coaches and scientists need to control the stress applied to the athlete at the individual level. To achieve this, precise control and manipulation of the training load are required. In 2003, the authors introduced a theoretical framework to define and conceptualize the measurable constructs of the training process. They describe...

Purpose:To examine the ability of multivariate models to predict the HR responses to some specific training drills from various GPS variables and to examine the usefulness of the difference in predicted vs actual HR responses as an index of fitness or readiness to perform.Method:All data were collected during one season (2016-2017) with players’ soccer activity recorded using 5-Hz GPS and internal load monitored using heart rate (HR). GPS and HR data were analysed during typical small-sided game...
