In PLAYERTEK+ there are 12 intensity metrics to choose from.
Unit: Metres per second (m/s), Kilometers per hour (k/h), Miles per hour (mph), Yards per minute (yd/min)
PLAYERTEK+ measures top speed as the maximum speed sustained for at least half a second.
For most players, 8.5 m/s (30.6 k/h) is considered fast. However, Arjen Robben
has exceeded 9.5 m/s while Usain Bolt regularly exceeds 11 m/s.
Distance per Minute
Unit: Metres per minute (m/min), Miles per minute (miles/min), Yards per minute (yd/min)
Metres per minute give an overall good representation of how hard and intensely you have worked.
Professional players will reach between 100-120 m/min in a typical game.
Unit: Watts per kilogram (w/kg)
Power score measures the power output used per kilogram of your weight. It is a useful tool to gauge the intensity of training drills where high work-rate within a small area is evident.
Small-sided games (SSG) are considered intense when the Power Score is above 10 w/kg. In amateur football, values of 7 to 8 are more normal.
Unit: Percentage (%)
This is defined as the percentage of total time during which the player was performing some work. Work is defined as walking or running at speeds higher than 1.5 m/s (that’s moderate to slow walk for most of us).
Work ratio therefore indicates the amount of time a player is working compared to resting. For a standard game or a small-sided drill.
The average number of acceleration efforts per minute of the session.
The average number of deceleration efforts per minute of the session.
The average heart rate load per minute of the session.
The average sprint distance covered per minute of the session.
Time in Red Zone
The amount of time where heart rate was in zone 4 or zone 5.
