Myths about Training Loads, Injuries and Performance

Training load control (TL) has become a cornerstone on which to optimise performance and avoid the risk of injury.

Volume vs intensity to increase strength and muscle mass gains

Strength training programs have a variety of goals, although the two main ones for most athletes are to increase strength or muscle mass.

RPE and its relationship with the risk of injury in footballers

Overtime, the competitive distance among elite football teams has shortened, so the focus is currently on those aspects that can tip the scale to one side or the other.

Changes in Muscle Glycogen Stores during a Football Match

Glycogen plays a key role in sports performance. During exercise, especially when performed at high intensity, the glycolytic metabolism takes on a special relevance.

Engaging Children in Sports

Children need physical activity every day. Exercise leads to improved physical and emotional health.

Nutrition Taken to Sports Practice

Athletes must ask themselves what to eat, when to eat and how much to eat. They must adjust to the day they train more or less, or to whether they are in preseason, in full competition or out of season.

Active recovery vs. passive recovery

It is important to assure a correct recovery between training sessions and even between the different exercises of the same session to maximize adaptations to training.

CAN BREATH HOLDING IMPROVE PERFORMANCE?

The Mexico 1968 Olympic Games represented a turning point in altitude training. Due to the dominance of athletes acclimatised to the altitude during the Games (they were held at an altitude of 2,340 m),1 in the 1970s, the implications of training or living in hypoxic conditions to improve performance started to be studied.

NEUROBIOLOGY OF DECISION-MAKING IN SPORTS

In 2008, neuroscientist John-Dylan Haynes conducted a set of experiments at the Bernstein Centre for Computational Neuroscience (Berlin) with the goal to learn more about the mechanisms of free will in human beings.

IS THE SPRINT A FRIEND OR AN ENEMY IN THE PLAYER’S TRAINING?

One of the main characteristics in football nowadays is the increase in actions performed at high speed. Its importance is such that, in most cases, goals and decisive actions are preceded by sprints.
