NUNES, Renan Felipe Hartmann et al. Comparison of physical and physiological indicators between professional futsal and soccer athletes. Motriz: rev. educ. fis. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.1, pp.104-112. ISSN 1980-6574.

Many professional sports training periodize soccer and futsal similarly. However, little is known about physical and physiological responses of futsal players. This study compared anthropometric, aerobic capacity and power production among professional indoor and outdoor soccer players. Eleven futsal players (age 24.1±2.4 years) and 21 soccer players (age 22.6±3.6 years) males underwent two experimental sessions: (i) anthropometric measurements, maximal effort test treadmill and (II) test speed of 30 meters (repeated sprint ability, CSA). It was applied t-test for independent samples to verify possible differences between the modalities (p>0,05). The futsal players showed higher values of HRVT (177,2±10 e 67,1±10,8 bpm) VO2max ;VO2VT; %VO2max (62,5±4,3 e 52,1±4,6; 58,7±5,6 e 43,1±4,6; 76±8,4 e 93,9±5,3 ml·kg-1·min-1) compared with soccer players, respectively. These results demonstrate the need for specific methods of training for outdoor and indoor soccer.
