High-speed running, sprinting, and injury risk in soccer

A look at the association between high-speed running, sprint running and injuries

Players exposed to large weekly increases in high-speed/ sprinting running distances have an increased injury risk.

Improved performance and exposure to chronic workloads allows playes to better tolerate increases in running distances with less injury risk.
