the importance of rate of force development (RFD) as part of speed strength next to MSt for effective sprinting performance. 15 , 22 MSt and RFD are crucial determinants of sprint performance and should therefore be considered in strength training for soccer players. It seems that high-load strength

Superior sprint performance is achieved through the generation of large moments by the muscles crossing the hip, knee, and ankle joints ( 29 ). The magnitudes of these moments are primarily determined by agonist muscle size ( 2 , 11 , 12 , 20 , 32 ). In fact, trunk and lower limb muscles are larger

The ability to accelerate over short distances is essential in field-based team sports such as soccer. 1 , 2 Since 90% of sprints performed during a soccer match are shorter than 20 m, maximal sprinting speed is likely less important than acceleration. 3 Short-sprint performance mirrors actual

results on the performance of drop jumps, 13 vertical jumps, 14 , 15 long jump, 16 supramaximal cycling time-trial, 17 and 1000-m running performance time. 18 However, few studies have tested the effect of these CAs on sprint performance. Till and Cooke 19 found that a single set of 5 vertical jumps

Resisted sprint training (RST) is a common training method employed to develop sprint performance, in which athletes mimic the traditional sprint movements (ie, unloaded sprints) with an added resistance. 1 Previous studies confirmed that this training strategy is able to induce positive transfer

Wearing a weighted vest (WV) during daily living activities and training (WVDT), 1 – 3 or during daily living only, 4 – 6 is one form of external loading used to enhance countermovement jump (CMJ) and sprinting performance. The theoretical benefits of WVDT were supported in a seminal

In a randomized cross-over experiment, Waterhouse et al 15 investigated the effects of a brief afternoon nap following a 4-hour nocturnal sleep curtailment on

Moreover, the relationships between strength and sprint performance are still not entirely clear in WB. 10 , 11 , 14 , 23 , 24 Few studies have analyzed in WB the influence of strength generation in specific movements that require chair handling, such as sprint ability. For example, Molik et

An important determinant of success in team sports is repeated sprint performance (RSP; Girard et al., 2011 ). RSP involves maximal or near-maximal short-duration sprints repeated in succession with brief recovery periods. Fatigue manifests as a sprint performance decrement (S dec ; %) over time
