We know that speed is a physical quality that isn’t particulalry stable – detraining can occur in as little a 5 ±5 days so it’s a fitness component that we like to keep an eye on. The problem is that there’s often a reluctance to test ‘game speed’ in players for fear of muscle injury.

Maybe there’s an alternative…

This study showed strong correlations between loaded/unloaded vertical and horizontal jump tests and sprint performance. This is good new because it opens up the potential to frequently assess a player or athletes performance and training level using simple, safe, efficient and effective jump tests.
