Using Intermittent Exercises in Training to Enhance Maximum Aerobic Speed and Power in U-19 Football Players
Hadjab Issam, Nasri Mohamed Sherif, Benmohamed Ahmed

In the present research, various forms of interval exercises, including short, medium, and long intervals, were
incorporated into a prescribed training regimen to assess their impact on the development of specifi c physical attributes,
namely Maximum Aerobic Speed and Speed-Related Strength, in football players under the age of 19. This study employed
an experimental method with a single-group design, involving a sample of 14 players from IRB SEDRATA. To this aim,
pre-tests, including the YO-YO Endurance Intermittent Test Level 2 and a hop test spanning a 10-meter distance for both
legs were conducted. Subsequently, the proposed training program was administered, culminating in post-tests to gauge
the program’s eff ectiveness, employing appropriate statistical methods. In conclusion, the results indicate that the proposed
training program has a positive impact on enhancing Maximum Aerobic Speed and Speed-Related Strength among the
sampled players.
