BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to analyze and determine the stability of the indicators of internal and external load during three korfball matches and find gender differences.
METHODS: Twelve elite korfball players were involved, 6 men (age: 22.3±0.8 years; body mass: 74.75±7.40 kg; height: 187.2±7.68 cm) and 6 women (age: 24.2±6.1 years; body mass: 61.25±4.10 kg; height: 170.5±5.72 cm). Six matches between teams were recorded using TEAM Polar2Pro monitors (Polar Electro, Kempele, Finland).
RESULTS: ICC from 0.742 to 0.951 and high %CV was found at outer values of heart rate zones (26.45% and 20.38%) and the intensity profile of player’s performance (16.08% and 30.76%). The mean heart rate was 167.13±8.96 beats×min-1 and distance covered was 4883.75±315 m. We found significant gender differences in heart rate variables (P=0.001).
CONCLUSIONS: Game demands of korfball were identified and should considered when planning training program. Differences in several attributes of game demands between men and women were confirmed.
