Objectives: The main aim of this study was to test the relationship of volume and weekly training intensities with match-running demands of professional male soccer players.
Methods: The training volume and intensity load and match demands of 18
professional soccer players (age: 20.7
Results: Match high-speed running (mHSR) and match
accelerations (mACC) were found to be moderately positively correlated with
weekly HSR (wtHSR) and weekly ACC volume (wtACC) (r = 0.497; p
Conclusions: Weekly HSR and ACC training volume and intensity have moderate associations with match HSR and ACC loads. Coaches should prioritize weekly HSR and ACC during the training process, for ensuring that players perform more HSR and ACC actions during the subsequent match.
