There is limited research focussed around the analysis of internal and external load parameters during football health programmes. The aim of this study was to assess the reliability of internal and external load parameters in this activity. Thrity subjects were enrolled (mean ± SDs; age = 43 ± 3 years, weight = 84 ± 14 kg, height = 176 ± 7 cm, BMI = 27.1 ± 3, VO2max = 40.7 ± 3.4 ml.kg.min-1). The football matches (five a-side) took place on an artificial grass outdoor field (pitch size of 36 × 18.5 m). Participants completed the match (60 min) and replicated the same match a week later. The analysis took into account several parameters: heart rate (HR), total distance (TD), high speed running (HSR), number of accelerations (>2 m.s-2) and metabolic power (MP). We found a good score of reliability in several parameters: TD (ICC = 0.66), accelerations (ICC = 0.62), mean HR (ICC = 0.82), HSR (ICC = 0.77) and MP (ICC = 0.66). The results reported in this study revealed good scores of absolute reliability and small/trivial effect size.

Abstract

There is limited research focussed around the analysis of internal and external load parameters during football health programmes. The aim of this study was to assess the reliability of internal and external load parameters in this activity. Thrity subjects were enrolled (mean ± SDs; age = 43 ± 3 years, weight = 84 ± 14 kg, height = 176 ± 7 cm, BMI = 27.1 ± 3, VO2max = 40.7 ± 3.4 ml.kg.min-1). The football matches (five a-side) took place on an artificial grass outdoor field (pitch size of 36 × 18.5 m). Participants completed the match (60 min) and replicated the same match a week later. The analysis took into account several parameters: heart rate (HR), total distance (TD), high speed running (HSR), number of accelerations (>2 m.s-2) and metabolic power (MP). We found a good score of reliability in several parameters: TD (ICC = 0.66), accelerations (ICC = 0.62), mean HR (ICC = 0.82), HSR (ICC = 0.77) and MP (ICC = 0.66). The results reported in this study revealed good scores of absolute reliability and small/trivial effect size.
