Abstract

Objective: To investigate the associations between static and dynamic core stability and anaerobic exercise capacity in young elite male soccer players.

Materials and Methods: Thirty-five athletes with a median (IQR 25/75) age of 17 (17/18) years were participated in the study. Static core stability and dynamic core stability were evaluated with side bridge test and Y balance test, respectively. Vertical Jump Test and Running-Based Anaerobic Sprint Test (RAST) were used as anaerobic exercise capacity related performance tests. Anaerobic exercise capacity was determined by using Wingate Anaerobic Test (WAnT).

Results: Significant but weak correlations were observed between dynamic core stability and WAnT average power (r= 0.370, p=0.029) and between dynamic core stability and RAST peak power (r= 0.371, p=0.028). No other significant relationships were detected between other core stability and anaerobic exercise capacity related measures (p>0.05).

Conclusions: It was determined that anaerobic exercise capacity is not related to static core stability, while poorly associated to dynamic core stability.
