Relationship between Isokinetic Strength Parameters and Soccer Throw-In Performance

Article excerpt

The aim of the current study was to determine ball velocity and throwing distance in standing and running throw-in techniques and to correlate these performances with isokinetic torques of the elbow, shoulder, and trunk extensors and flexors. Fourteen male amateur soccer players (M age = 22.93 years, SD = 2.27; M training stares = 11.64 years, SD = 4.16), volunteered to participate the study. Isokinetic (consentric/consentric) tests were measured at 60 and 180[degrees][s.sup.-1] angular velocities for the elbow and shoulder, and 30 and 120[degrees][s.sup.-1] angular velocities for the trunk. Ball velocities were analyzed by radar gun, and the throwing distance was measured regarding throw-in performance. An unpaired t test was used to analyze ball velocity and throwing distance differences between two different throwing techniques. Pearson correlations were used to clarify the relationship between isokinetic strength values and ball velocities and distance that occur during the two throwing techniques. There were no statistical significant differences regarding throwing velocity and distance between the two throw-in techniques. …
