Load monitoring, strength training, and recovery in futsal: Practitioners’ perspectives

Load monitoring, strength training, and recovery in futsal: Practitioners’ perspectives This study aimed to describe the current practices in futsal regarding a variety of topics related to performance and injury risk mitigation. Thirty-seven coaches from Spain and Portugal completed a questionnaire consisting of 28 closed questions organized in four categories: a) background information; b) training load (TL) monitoring and assessment of players’ physical qualities; c) strength training (ST) practices; and d) recovery (REC) methods. The results showed that coaches varied in experience (1–8 years) and age (from 20 years to >50 years). Overall, 97.3% of the participants declared monitoring TL, with rating of perceived exertion, heart rate monitors, and wearable technology being used by 86.5%, 40.5%, and 37.8%, respectively. Neuromuscular and strength testing are the most common practices to evaluate performance and fatigue during the season. ST is a significant component of futsal, being performed 3 times/week during the pre- and in-season. ST is prescribed via %1RM – XRM (59.5%), velocity-based training (21.7%), repetitions in reserve (18.9%), until failure (10.8%), and circuit training (2.7%). ‘Better Monitoring’, ‘More Individualized’, ‘Better Facilities’, ‘More Staff’, and ‘More Time’ were the main aspects to improve ST. Multiple post-match REC strategies are used, with durations ranging from 0–15 to 16–30 min independently of game location. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Science and Medicine in Football Taylor & Francis
