The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of strength training on physical fitness parameters and injuries occurrence in young elite soccer players.
52 elite young soccer players (13–14 years) were divided into two groups: An experimental group (EG, n = 26) and a control group (CG, n = 26).
For EG, 2 to 3 sessions of strength training (90 minutes) were introduced weekly in their training program for 12 weeks.
Sprint tests (10-20-30 m), T-test time, and jumping tests were measured at the start (T0), at the middle (T1), and at the end of the experiment period (T2).
The injury rate was recorded. Compared to CG, EG performed significantly better in sprint running and T-test time at T2 (p , 0.01).
Similarly, the improvement amount for jumping tests was significantly greater (p # 0.05) in EG than in CG.
A total of 17 injuries were recorded over the soccer season.
The rate was higher in CG (13 injuries) than in training group (4 injuries).
This study showed that strength training accurately and efficiently scheduled in youth soccer players, induced performance improvement, and reduced the rate of injuries.
Resultatet viste at kombineret plyometrisk og styrketræning kan give en forøgelse af en række performance parametre og reducere forekomsten af skader.
Der er en tendens i studier, at stærkere atleter hopper højere og løbere hurtigere.
Dette studie er et af de første til at vise at en intervention af styrketræning til elite fodboldspillere over en sæson.
Studiet viser, at et 12 ugers kombineret plyometric og styrketræning + fodboldtræning fører til en forbedret eksplosiv styrke, og en række andre relaterede performance parametre og reduceret forekomst af skaden.
