This study aimed to examine various biochemical biomarkers changes during a shock micro-cycle in soccer players from a university team.
As previous literature updates, I have performed a PubCrawler search looking for football articles in NCBI Medline (PubMed) and GenBank databases.
Following studies were retrieved for this week:
Mental fatigue can impact physical demands and tactical behaviour in sport-related contexts. Small-sided games (SSGs) are often used to develop a specific sport-related context. This systematic review (with a meta-analysis) was conducted to compare the effects of mental fatigue vs. control conditions in terms of the total running distance and tactical behaviour of soccer players during SSGs.
Considering the perceived benefit of early recruitment and the time and resources spent developing youth players, individuals released from talent development programmes are often re-recruited by rival academies. Limited data exists on players deselected from (or reselected to) youth soccer academies.
