*Description of the variables analysed in the study.*

Variables | Definition |

Distance (m) | Total distance travelled in metres |

Dist (m/min) | Total distance travelled per minute |

Explosive Dist (m) | Total distance travelled with an acceleration of greater than 1.12^{m/s2} |

Explosive Dist (m/min) | Explosive distance in metres per minute |

HSR Rel Dist (m) | High speed running relative is the distance travelled at speeds above the player’s threshold (at 75.5% of maximum speed) |

HSR Rel (m/min) | High speed running relative in metres per minute |

HSR Rel Count | Number of times (counter) that the player has run at a speed above his HSR Rel threshold. |

HSR Abs Dist (m) | High speed running absolute is the distance travelled at speeds above 21 km/h. |

HSR Abs (m/min) | High speed running absolute in metres per minute. |

HSR Abs Count | Number of times (counter) that the player has run at a speed above their HSR threshold Abs |

SprintsREL | Number of sprints above the relative sprint speed threshold |

MAX Speed (km/h) | Maximum speed achieved |

Sprints (min) | Number of sprints per minute |

Step Balance | Percentage of decompensation between right and left step intensity. A negative result indicates that the dominant leg is the right leg |

Player Load | Displays the accumulation of motion in the accelerometers |

Player Load (min) | Player load per minute rate value |

HMLD (m) | High metabolic load distance is the distance travelled by a player when his metabolic power is above 25.5 W/kg |

HMLD count | Number of times the player has been at a metabolic power higher than 25.5 W/kg |

HMLD (m/min) | HMLD value per minute |

DSL | Dynamic stress load, number of impacts weighted above 2G |

DSL (min) | DSL value per minute |

>24 (m/min) | Running at a speed of more than 24 km/h in metres per minute |
