Description

The 3-min-all-out exercise test (3 MT) is a technique that estimates critical speed (CS) and anaerobic work capacity (D’).The critical speed (CS) model identifies an athlete’s CS, in relation to their max aerobic steady state, and their anaerobic capacity (D’). A velocity-time (V-t) relationship of the extreme exercise bout, in which D’ indicates the capacity of work above CS, is determined via the CS concept. In soccer, there is a need to sprint repetitively (D’) as well as have an aerobic base (CS). We adapted the 3 MT, devised to identify CS and D’, for indoor running using a digitized video on 17 female, collegiate soccer players in order to prescribe interval training programs for each athlete. The team was divided into two groups to either improve CS or D’, depending on their individual deficiencies. Each group completed eight intervals over a four week period at identical percentages of D’ depletions, but at different V-t durations. Therefore, the group working to improve their D’ or anaerobic capacity ran 400m intervals at high velocities, while the group improving their CS or aerobic capacity ran 600m intervals at low velocities. Heart rate (HR) was recorded and downloaded after every workout from each athlete. The HR data progressively got higher after each interval, indicating the individual is exercising above CS. Post assessment of the 3 MT will be evaluated as before to determine the efficacy of the programs prescribed. These results will be reported on the poster.
