…and that doesn’t look like changing in the near future.
I thought I’d post something a little different today.
This is from the other day and thought some might find it interesting as I’ve had a few emails about what testing I do outside of the gym.
Well this is one of those tests.
Phosphate Decrement Test (PDT)
What I’m looking for from this testing is the fastest PDT, slowest PDT, mean PDT, the fastest PDT compared with their best 40m sprint time and their percentage of fatigue.
EFFORT – 0.99
%FATIGUE – 11.13
EFFORT – 0.98
FATIGUE – 17.34
EFFORT – 0.96
FATIGUE – 11.56
Comparing the 40m standing sprint time with the fastest decrement repeat gives a good indication of the effort made by each athlete in the first repeats of the
PDT. By dividing the athlete 40m sprint time by the fastest repetition of the PDT (Stand 40m Time/PDT Fastest)x 100 will give a percentage value. This value should be <97%. Percentage fatigue gives an indication of how much the player fatigued or dropped off
over the 10 repeats. This is expressed as a percentage and is obtained by:
((PDT Slowest – PDT Fastest)/PDT Fastest) x 100. The mean PDT is simply the average of all 10 repeats.
I will post all the data that corresponds with this video as soon as I get a chance to go through it all…it is one of the many things that I should be doing rather than blogging.
If anyone in Ireland particularly is interested in having their team or teams properly tested drop me an email. This includes the speed, power, agility and fitness testing….this is just one of many tests. I’ll post some more of the tests when I get the chance…like I said…I need a full time videographer to follow me around but I’ll make an effort to to show more of the testing
