Objectives The principle aim of the current study was to examine within-match patterns of locomotor efficiency in professional soccer, determined as the ratio between tri-axial accelerometer data (PlayerLoad™) and locomotor activities. Between match... Read More about The within-match patterns of locomotor efficiency during professional soccer match play: implications for injury risk?.
