Summary of "Maximal heart rate assessment in recreational football players. A study involving a multiple testing approach."

This study aimed at examining the suitability of a standard treadmill test (TT), popular intermittent field tests and small-sided recreational football matches to induce maximal heart rate (HR ) in recreational football players. Sixty-six male sedentary untrained subjects (age 39.3±5.8 years, VO 41.3±6.2 ml·kg ·min , body mass 81.9±10.8 kg, height 173.2±6.4 cm) were evaluated. On separate occasions, the players were randomly submitted to a progressive VO TT, to the Yo-Yo intermittent endurance level 1 (YYIE1) and level 2 (YYIE2) tests, to the Yo-Yo intermittent recovery level 1 (YYIR1) test, and to 7v7 (43x27 m pitch, 83 m /player) football matches (45 min; 2-4 matches/player). To ensure data consistency, exercise HR was recorded using the same HR monitors in all the experimental conditions. A total of 73, 24, 18, 17 and 30% of players achieved HR during the YYIE1, YYIE2, YYIR1, TT and the small-sided football matches, respectively. The probability of achieving HR increased proportionally to test duration, with 7.8 min as the cut-off time. Variations in HR of ±2 b min should be regarded as of practical relevance. YYIE1 HR provided the most accurate estimation of a subject's individual HR and much higher probability of reaching HR . Nevertheless, the results of this study suggest caution in considering a reference test for HR assessment in this population. The use of confirmation tests is still highly advisable when the test duration is shorter than 7.8 min. In this regard, field tests seem to be suitable and accurate for individual HR assessment in recreational football players. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

A competitive team sport played on a rectangular field. This is the American or Canadian version of the game and also includes the form known as rugby. It does not include non-North American football (= SOCCER).

The heart rate of the FETUS. The normal range at term is between 120 and 160 beats per minute.

Methods, techniques, and processes by which HEART RATE is measured.

The airflow rate measured during the first liter expired after the first 200 ml have been exhausted during a FORCED VITAL CAPACITY determination. Common abbreviations are MEFR, FEF 200-1200, and FEF 0.2-1.2.
