Assessment of Neuromuscular Fatigue 24 Hours After a Futsal Simulated Protocol in University Athletes
International Journal of Exercise Science 16(1): 205-216, 2023. The purpose of this study was to identify changes in neuromuscular performance variables evaluated through the countermovement jump test before and after (0 hours, after session and 24h post) of a simulated futsal protocol in young university female athletes. Fourteen eumenorrheic, healthy and experienced female futsal players were randomly assigned to an intervention group n = 7) or a control group (n = 7). Both groups performed three countermovement jumps before and after the protocol using an inertial system device. The intervention group completed a short-term functional agility and fatigue protocol that simulated the characteristics of futsal, while the control group did not perform any exercise. The results showed a reduction in peak flight time (p = 0.049; d = 0.586), peak concentric work (p = 0.03; d = 1.819) and peak maximum force (p = 0.02; d = 0.782) comparing experimental and control group. No changes in other variables examined were noted between conditions (p > 0.05). These findings indicate that the changes in neuromuscular performance variables, evaluated through a simulated protocol, are established as determinants in the definition of peripheral fatigue in futsal practitioners until 24 h after a demanding intervention.
