Journal Article
Abt, G., Bray, J., & Fogarty, M. (2016). Using microtechnology to evaluate the between and within match variability of professional Twenty20 cricket fast bowlers. Professional strength and conditioning, 43(December), 19-26

This study assessed the between- and within-match variability of external training load measures during two consecutive Twenty20 cricket seasons in professional fast bowlers. Global positioning system (GPS) and accelerometer data (PlayerLoad™) were c...

Hot and Hypoxic Environments Inhibit Simulated Soccer Performance and Exacerbate Performance Decrements When Combined (2016)
Journal Article
Aldous, J. W. F., Chrismas, B. C. R., Akubat, I., Dascombe, B., Abt, G., & Taylor, L. (2016). Hot and Hypoxic Environments Inhibit Simulated Soccer Performance and Exacerbate Performance Decrements When Combined. Frontiers in Physiology, 6(185), 1-14. https://doi.org/10.3389/fphys.2015.00421

The effects of heat and/or hypoxia have been well-documented in match-play data. However, large match-to-match variation for key physical performance measures makes environmental inferences difficult to ascertain from soccer match-play. Therefore, th...
