Padilla, J.R; Lozada, J.L. (2013). Relación de la capacidad de sprints repetidos con manifestaciones de la potencia muscular de los miembros inferiores, potencia aeróbica y parámetros antropométricos en jugadores jóvenes de fútbol. Journal of Sport and Health Research. 5(2):179-192.




The objective of this research was to determine the relationship of the manifestations of explosive strength, aerobic power and anthorpometric variables on repeated sprint ability in young soccer players. 40 soccer players in the sub-13 and sub-15 categories were evaluated. The Bangsbo protocol was used for the assessment of performance in repeated sprint test. In assessing of explosive strength was applied squat jump, countermovement jump and countermovement jump with arms. The VO2máx estimation was done through the Course Navette test and anthropometric parameters were used muscle mass (MM). Significant inverse correlations (p<0,01) were found between shorter time sprint and explosive strength, and VO2max and MM; furthermore was found significant correlations (p<0,01) between mean sprint times and explosive strength. It can be concluded that higher values explosive strength of lower limb, muscle mass and VO2max are presented better performance in repeated sprint with changes of direction.
