In‑season monotony, strain and workload of perceived exertion, GPS running based variables between positions of an elite football team

The interpretation of the load variations across a period seems important to control the weekly progression or variation of the load, or to identify within- micro and mesocycle variations. The aim of this study was to describe the in-season variations of training monotony, training strain, and acute:chronic workload ratio (ACWR) through session rating of perceived exertion (s-RPE), total distance (TD) and high-speed running (HSR) according to playing positions in an elite soccer team.
