Abstract

Effect of Supramaximal Spinning® on Running Performance of Male Collegiate Soccer Players

Change of direction, first-step-quickness, acceleration, and sprinting are general components of athletes’ performances in many sports. Sport specific training of those abilities is necessary to ensure competency and success of players. However, nonspecific training forms such as resistance training and cycling are also used in the training process with different purposes. As a result, the purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of a non-specific training form (supramaximal Spinning®) on (soccerspecific) running performance in Division I collegiate male soccer players. Performance variables were determined via a 23.65-meter sprint and a change of direction test. The fifteen soccer players of the team were randomly selected into a training (N=8) or a control group (N=7). The training consisted of 10 training session over a period of 14 days and was in addition to the regular daily team practice. Each training consisted of a 5-minute warm-up phase, 10 sets of 15-seconds maximum Spinning®, with no resistance intersperse with 30 seconds of active recovery and a 5-minute cool-down phase.
