Physical qualities and workload–injury relationship

Do strength, speed, and repeated-sprint ability influence the workload-injury relationship?

This prospective study found that improved lower body strength, repeated-sprint ability (RSA), and speed were associated with higher workload tolerance and reduced injury risk in team sport athletes.

These associations were seen during both the pre-season and in-season periods. Athletes with improved physical qualities were also able to tolerate greater weekly changes in workload and greater workloads with less risk.
