The participants were provided with nutritional instruction 48 hours prior to testing to ensure hydration and glycogen levels were at optimal levels. Each athlete was instructed to fast 2 hours prior to testing and not to engage

such as Stone et al 8 recommend the SSP because it includes a repeated sprint test halfway through each of the 6 bouts and nonlinear sprint actions at maximum speed (agility tests). The latest comparative studies, suggest that players’ performance is similar on AT and NG, 6 – 8 although it has been

evaluate the following fitness components: aerobic fitness (20-m shuttle run), lower-body muscle power (standing long jump), coordination and speed of upper-limb movements (plate tapping test), agility (10 × 5-m shuttle run test), and flexibility (sit and reach test). To assess upper-body muscle power, a 2
