The New Specific-Complex Tests in Sport Performance
Part I: Phylosophy from Laboratory to Field
Assessments of physical and physiological performance tests in team’s sports are still unspecific yet.
There is also a lack of scientific validation using those as a “golden standard”.
Concerning match performance a large deficit also exist in sports and medical science.
Therefore, the scientific and practical situation concerning sport-specific performance diagnostic is poor and unsatisfactory.
Currently, we are not able to measure the match performance.
But there are no alternatives to this gold standard because it is the practical and key question for coaches and scientists on the way to valid tests and sufficient sport-specific training programs.
We can observe in science and practice a great contradiction between the often-described complex requirement profile of team sport and the nonspecific and noncomplex performance diagnostic however.
There are few publications within the last 16 years regarding validity or reliability of tests used for prescreption in sport performance.
This Book presents a valuable guide for the reader to optimize performance and results by taking into account the recent scientific literature of the New Specific-Complex Tests in Sport Performance.
