Development Of A Methodology For The Quantification Of Physiological Load For Soccer Players, Robert W. Wilson Aug 2012

Development Of A Methodology For The Quantification Of Physiological Load For Soccer Players, Robert W. Wilson

Theses and Dissertations

The overall aim of this research project was to devise valid mathematical models for quantifying the physiological load (PL) of practices and competitions for female and male NCAA Division I collegiate soccer players. Data from sub-maximal and maximal effort tests were used to construct these models. After development of the physiological load quantification (PLQ) models, the validity of them occurred by comparing them to the physiological gold standard of performed work, volume of oxygen consumed (V*O2). Last, comparisons of the scores from the PLQ models to the PL scores from the previous models occurred. In combination these three studies ...
