Analysis of significance of physical parameters in football through GPS detection in a comparison with amateur athlete


Author(s): Riccardo Izzo, Matteo Carrozzo

Abstract: The study brings together the average physical parameters achieved by a professional athlete and an amateur football athlete of different sports, a middle-distance runner / rugby player in our case, the objective of which is trying to reach the physical parameters on average obtained by professional players during a ninety minute match, despite having different abilities, through a run on the athletics track and football field. The research involves the use of 10Hz GPS (Global Positioning System) technology which allows the detection of actions and movements of the athlete and some ways in which these are carried out via satellite triangulation. The Qualities to which we refer in this study and that will be taken into consideration will mainly be speed> 16 km / h, acceleration> 2m / s / s, deceleration, -2m / s / s and metabolic power,> 20W / kg. The study aims to demonstrate that it is not impossible to achieve the parameters of the trained professional footballer, especially in terms of strength, speed and acceleration. Our aim is also to offer some reflections to eventually remodel, if useful and possible, training loads ceilings of professional athletes so far considered optimal.
