Recently, scientists performed a study concerning the differences in fitness between indoor soccer players and outdoor soccer players. As opposed to outdoor soccer (OS) players, indoor soccer (IS) players use a smaller surface for a shorter duration. The IS players are comprised of five basic players as well as multiple substitutions.
During the study, participants performed a jumping test and a sprint and endurance running test. The results revealed that the indoor players displayed a two percent lead in the sprint running tests. There were no differences concerning endurance running; however, some of the OS players were not physically able to finish the endurance running tests. Lower extremity muscle strength was higher for OS players.
In Zurich, scientists found that outdoor exercise activities were more restorative than indoor exercise activities. People tend to exercise in concert with various categories, including socio-demographic, beneficial, and possible barriers to exercise.
