Metabolic Power in Team Sports - Fundamentals, Application and Controversies

Date: Wednesday, 5th July 2017
Room: L (Süd)
Time: 09:00 - 10:30

„Metabolic power“ is a hot topic in sport science research and team sport practice. This workshop will aim to (1.) clarify essential fundamentals to compute the instantaneous metabolic power during accelerated sprint running from a mathematical and technical point of view; (2.) demonstrate applications and benefits for team sport practice, potentially overcoming the limitations of traditional speed and/or acceleration based analyses; and (3.) highlight some controversies, for example, in regards to the model’s validity for determining the energy expenditure during team sport specific movement patterns.
