Abstract: Overall, various exercise protocols are used to determine the exercise capacity of soccer players. However, to date, it is still unclear what method is the most adequate as no universal protocol has yet been developed. In addition, the correlation between data derived from laboratory tests and soccer-specific field tests remain unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate to what extent two maximal graded exercise tests, with short (ST) and long (LT) speed increments of respectively every one and three minutes, correlate with a soccer-specific field test (YYIRTL1). In addition, the impact of the level of competition (amateur vs. professional) the players participate in on the exercise capacity will be studied.
