correlations between the body height, body weight, and foot width significantly co-varied with the postural control parameters under the eyes closed condition. In the present study, participants were young sub-elite soccer players who had up to 12 years of soccer experience with four to five practice sessions

Conclusions The present study reported fluctuations in body composition and bioelectrical parameters assessed by BIA and BIVA in elite soccer players. Particularly, body mass and total body water were higher during the early follicular and lower

Studies so far in elite soccer have identified potential links of internal load with noncontact injury. Using the sRPE method of quantifying internal load, 17 Fanchini et al 13 found a significant
