Previous research suggests an association between eccentric strength (ECC-STR) and change of direction (COD) ability. The fact that it is unknown how ECC-STR facilitates COD prompted this study. Relationships were found between COD performance, ECC-STR and approach velocity (AV) in female soccer players. Stronger players recorded greater AV and reduction in velocity during penultimate contact. Greater ECC-STR is associated with faster COD performance in female soccer players, as stronger players are better able to decelerate during penultimate contact from faster AV. View this paper
