It is with great pleasure that we present the final work of the ACF Fiorentina’s athletic trainer Alessandro Danti entitled: STUDIO DEL METODO SPERIMENTALE DELLA POSTURA DI ATTESA DEL PORTIERE DENOMINATA “FREQUENZA” available on the FIGC (Italian Football Federation) website at the following link: www.settoretecnico.figc.it.
The dissertation is based on a study carried out on the goalkeepers of the Primavera team of ACF Fiorentina using BTS FREEEMG 1000 and BTS G-WALK systems. In particular, the objective of this work is to analyze and understand the stretch-shortening cycle of muscles while the goalkeeper is preparing to perform the typical technical gesture. The main aim is to understand the importance of the elastic energy generated by the countermovement, that occurs before the motor task, thus showing the increase of the strength employed during the final movement.
Enjoy the reading!
