Individual acceleration-speed profile in-situ: new testing approach for football players

Jean-Benoit Morin Full Professor /University of Saint-Etienne (France)
  • Sprint performance and mechanics (force-velocity-power output) are key physical feature in football
  • They are usually tested through maximal acceleration and speed tests, which might be challenging to schedule in real-life scenarios
  • A novel approach, the « in-situ individual acceleration-speed profile » will remove this limitation by « testing the players without testing them
