Analysis of Tests Evaluating Sport Climbers’ Strength and Isometric Endurance

exhaustion. The result of this test was expressed by the time the subject could hold on. In the second test (PULL UPS), the maximum number of pull-ups completed by the subject was recorded, but for a pull-up to be credited, it had to be performed in accordance with the International Physical Fitness Test rules ( Quaine and Vigouroux, 2004 ). Statistical analysis After the results of the tests were processed with descriptive statistics (the arithmetic mean and measures of variance), rank correlation coefficients were calculated (Pearson’s r) to determine whether

Physical Performance Comparison Between Under 15 Elite and Sub-Elite Soccer Players

the change of direction speed in soccer. Some researchers differentiated between groups of youth elite and sub-elite soccer players using different CODS tests ( Gil et al., 2007 ; Kaplan et al., 2009 ; Reilly et al., 2000 ) while others did not ( Coelho e Silva et al., 2010 ; Lago-Peñas et al., 2014 ). Given the model of the determinants of sports performance ( Bangsbo et al., 2006 ), there is a clear need to measure the athletes’ physical performance profile focusing on their ability to perform high-intensity activities (with or without sport-specific skills
