The common variance between the agility tests was 45%, indicating that they represented relatively independent skills. There was a large correlation between RS and defending agility (r = 0.625, p = 0.004), and a very large correlation with attacking agility (r = 0.731, p < 0.001). Defending and attacking agility have different characteristics, possibly related to the footwork, physical, and cognitive demands of each. Nonetheless, RS seems to be important for agility, especially for attacking agility. © 2016 National Strength and Conditioning Association.]]> Wed 24 May 2017 13:45:10 AEST ]]> Association between preseason training and performance in elite Australian football Wed 24 Apr 2019 15:09:37 AEST ]]> Changes in leg power, jump and sprint performance following nine-weeks of conventional vs complex training Wed 22 Feb 2017 10:04:45 AEDT ]]> Effect of instructions on selected jump squat variables 0.05). Jump height was the variable that correlated most strongly with 10-m time and 10- to 20-m time under both instructions. The height instruction produced a stronger correlation with 10-m time (r = -0.455), but the fast leg extension JS produced a greater correlation with 10-20 time (r = -0.545). The results indicate that instructions have a meaningful influence on JS variables and therefore need to be taken into consideration when assessing or training athletes.]]> Wed 20 Sep 2017 15:24:05 AEST ]]> Trunk muscle activation during dynamic weight-training exercises and isometric instability activities Wed 19 Dec 2018 15:05:40 AEDT ]]> Development of a tennis-specific fatigue-inducing protocol and the effects of caffeine on performance Wed 19 Apr 2017 13:48:42 AEST ]]> Effects of small-sided game and change-of-direction training on reactive agility and change-of-direction speed 0.05). The change-of-direction training produced small to trivial changes in all of the test variables (P > 0.05, effect size = 0-0.2). The results suggest that small-sided games improve agility performance by enhancing the speed of decision-making rather than movement speed. The change-of-direction training was not effective for developing either change-of-direction speed as measured by the Planned-AFL test or reactive agility.]]> Wed 16 Aug 2017 11:59:41 AEST ]]> Examining approaches to combining strength and power in a training program Wed 10 Jan 2018 09:11:31 AEDT ]]> Supplementing regular training with short-duration sprint-agility training leads to a substantial increase in repeated sprint-agility performance with national level badminton players Wed 08 Nov 2017 07:20:12 AEDT ]]> Physical qualities predict change-of-direction speed but not defensive agility in Australian rules football 2 = 0.567, p ≤ 0.05). Participants were median split into faster and slower COD speed groups, and these were compared by independent t-tests. The faster group was significantly better (p ≤ 0.05) on the sprint acceleration and reactive strength tests (large effect size). The correlations between physical qualities and agility were trivial to small (r = -0.101 to 0.123, p > 0.05) and collectively explained only 14.2% of the variance associated with agility performance (adjusted R2 = -0.142, p > 0.05). When faster and slower agility groups were compared, there were trivial to moderate differences (p > 0.05) in all physical qualities. It was concluded that reactive strength and sprint acceleration are important for COD speed, but the physical qualities assessed are not associated with defensive agility performance. For agility tasks similar to those in this study, sprint and resistance training should not be emphasized, and training other factors, such as the development of sportspecific technique and cognitive skill, is recommended. © 2015 National Strength and Conditioning Association.]]> Wed 08 Nov 2017 07:10:58 AEDT ]]> The effects of frontal- and sagittal-plane plyometrics on change-of-direction speed and power in adolescent female basketball players Wed 08 Nov 2017 07:08:05 AEDT ]]> Comparison of agility demands of small-sided games in elite Australian football .05, ES = 0.16) in agility events compared with normal AFL tackling rules (SSG 2, 8.3 ± 3.6; SSG 4, 7.8 ± 2.6).

It was concluded that the technique assessment tool captured some important characteristics of 20-m sprint performance and could potentially be used to profile or monitor athletes.

The higher standard had greater (mean 97% likely) load/min (AU) values in each position. The difference between 1st and 2nd halves' load/min (AU) was unclear at the higher standard, while lower-grade centers had a lower (-7.7% ± 10.8%, 81% likely) load/min (AU) in the 2nd half and in all quarters compared with the 1st. There was little intrastandard variation in individual vector contributions to load/min (AU); however, higher-standard players accumulated a greater proportion of the total in the vertical plane (mean 93% likely)., Conclusions: Higher-standard players produced greater load/min (AU) than their lower-standard counterparts in all positions. Playing standard influenced the pattern of load/min (AU) accumulation across a match, and individual vector analysis suggests that different-standard players have dissimilar movement characteristics. Load/min (AU) appears to be a useful method for assessing activity profile in netball. © 2014 Human Kinetics, Inc.]]> Wed 03 Jan 2018 11:09:25 AEDT ]]> Variability of the agility training stimulus in small-sided games in elite Australian Rules Football Wed 03 Jan 2018 10:29:32 AEDT ]]> Relationship between pre-season anthropometric and fitness measures and indicators of playing performance in elite junior Australian rules football Wed 02 Jan 2019 12:19:12 AEDT ]]> Physiological and anthropometric characteristics of starters and non-starters and playing positions in elite Australian Rules football : A case study Wed 02 Jan 2019 11:58:12 AEDT ]]> The effect of an upper-body agonist-antagonist resistance training protocol on volume load and efficiency Wed 01 May 2019 14:33:31 AEST ]]> Examining age and gender effects in physical performance in young athletes aged 12-16 years Tue 28 Feb 2017 12:56:16 AEDT ]]> The delivery of injury prevention exercise programmes in professional youth soccer : Comparison to the FIFA 11 Tue 23 Oct 2018 13:50:52 AEDT ]]> Correlations between attaching agility, defensive agility, change of direction speed and reactive strength in Australian footballers Tue 20 Mar 2018 14:33:36 AEDT ]]> A biomechanical comparison of controlled versus explosive back squats Tue 16 Jan 2018 13:46:31 AEDT ]]> The relationship between individual player exercise load and sleep to injury in semi-professional soccer players : A case study Tue 16 Jan 2018 13:13:02 AEDT ]]> The relationships between selected physical qualities and bowling performance, with 'match-intensity' and 'maximal-effort' deliveries in cricket pace-bowlers Tue 16 Jan 2018 13:08:56 AEDT ]]> Quantifying cricket fast-bowling skill Tue 12 Feb 2019 13:16:32 AEDT ]]> Towards a national sports safety strategy: Addressing facilitators and barriers towards safety guideline uptake Tue 12 Feb 2019 11:51:51 AEDT ]]> Physically preparing the fast bowler in cricket: A review of the literature Tue 09 Jan 2018 16:43:04 AEDT ]]> Agility training for tennis Tue 09 Jan 2018 14:18:04 AEDT ]]> An evaluation of a new test of reactive agility and its relationship to sprint speed and change of direction speed Tue 08 Jan 2019 12:59:04 AEDT ]]> Agility literature review : Classifications, training and testing Tue 08 Jan 2019 10:13:10 AEDT ]]> Lessons learnt from implementing FootyFirst in 2012 Tue 07 Aug 2018 14:14:18 AEST ]]> Sports injury prevention; Maximising the public health benefit Tue 07 Aug 2018 10:11:07 AEST ]]> Sports injury prevention: improving the outcomes Tue 07 Aug 2018 10:06:52 AEST ]]> Strength training for the young athlete Tue 01 Aug 2017 11:31:17 AEST ]]> Enhancing foot velocity in football kicking: The role of strength training Thu 28 Mar 2019 16:22:12 AEDT ]]> The relationship between physical capacity and match performance in elite Australian football : A mediation approach Thu 28 Mar 2019 15:30:25 AEDT ]]> Agonist-antagonist paired set resistance training: a brief review Thu 28 Mar 2019 15:07:38 AEDT ]]> The development of a test of reactive agility for netball : A new methodology Thu 21 Feb 2019 16:44:03 AEDT ]]> The effects of plyometric training on change-of-direction ability : A meta-analysis Thu 14 Mar 2019 11:27:26 AEDT ]]> Acceleration, change of direction speed and agility profile of adult community level Australian football players Thu 14 Dec 2017 12:27:46 AEDT ]]> What do community football players think about different exercise-training programmes?

By week 12, 1540 players were recruited but training attendance (reach) decreased to <50%. When players attended training, the majority adopted the full programme—ranging from 96% (week 1) to above 80% until week 20. The most common reasons for low adoption were players being injured, too sore, being late for training or choosing their own warm-up. Conclusions: The training programme's reach was highest preseason and halved at the playing season's end. However, when players attended training sessions, their adoption was high and remained close to 70% by season end. For sports injury prevention programmes to be fully effective across a season, attention also needs to be given to (1) encouraging players to attend formal training sessions and (2) considering the possibility of some form of programme delivery outside of formal training.]]> Thu 09 Aug 2018 11:26:12 AEST ]]> Comparison of agility demands of two small-sided games in elite Australian rules football Thu 07 Dec 2017 15:38:57 AEDT ]]> The use of sprint tests for assessment of speed qualities of elite Australian rules footballers Thu 05 Apr 2018 16:03:11 AEST ]]> Is nine weeks of complex training effective for improving lower body strength, explosive muscle function, sprint and jumping performance?

With the exception of low-intensity acceleration/deceleration, the same relationships were positive and generally of a moderate-to-large magnitude in the high CK (greater volumes) group. It may be that a certain volume of movement is required for that movement to be strongly associated with CK levels.

However the run plus 2 min stretch and the run plus 4 min stretch protocols produced significantly lower (P<0.05) DJ performance (jump height/ground contact time) than the run. The run plus 4 min stretch warm-up also produced a significantly lower DJ score than the run plus 1 min stretch warm-up. There were no significant differences between any of the warm-ups in ankle ROM. Conclusions. The addition of 2-4 min of SS at 100% intensity to a run caused an impairment to fast stretch shortening cycle muscle performance. The greater impairment from the 4 min stretching condition supported a volume-effect. Two minutes of stretching at 90% intensity had no significant influence on muscle function. The addition of up to 4 min of SS to a run had no appreciable effect on ankle ROM, possibly because of the prior influence of the run.]]> Mon 16 Jan 2017 20:53:35 AEDT ]]> Validity of a reactive agility test for Australian football Mon 16 Jan 2017 16:24:53 AEDT ]]> Comparison of playing positions in elite Australian football: A case study of one club 0.05).
