Abstract: There is a growing interest in programming generic (i.e., no ball involved) high-speed running (HSR) drills in most team sports, especially for those played over large spaces (e.g., soccer, rugby, field hockey, Australian Rules Football). Specific HSR sessions are, today, part of most microcycles and postmatch HSR top-ups for substitutes or benched players are commonly adopted. Also, monitoring the distance accumulated in these speed bands (> 19.8 km/h) with GPS has become the norm for every sports scientist and conditioning coach. This stems from the increasing belief that HSR should be an integral part of players’ preparation for both performance and injury mitigation strategies.
