Journal Article
Akubat, I., Barrett, S., Sagarra, M. L., & Abt, G. (2018). The validity of external:internal training load ratios in rested and fatigued soccer players. Sports open access journal, 6(2), 44. https://doi.org/10.3390/sports6020044

Purpose: To examine the relationship of external:internal training load ratios with fitness and assess the impact of fatigue. Method: Ten soccer players performed a lactate threshold test followed by two soccer simulations (BEAST90mod) 48 h apart. Re...

The within-match patterns of locomotor efficiency during professional soccer match play: implications for injury risk? (2016)
Journal Article
Barrett, S., Midgley, A., Reeves, M., Joel, T., Franklin, E., Heyworth, R., …Lovell, R. (2016). The within-match patterns of locomotor efficiency during professional soccer match play: implications for injury risk?. Journal of science and medicine in sport / Sports Medicine Australia, 19(10), 810-815 . https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jsams.2015.12.514

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?.
