Abstract Resume

Background: The investigation of the of strength asymmetry between the lower limbs muscles must be considered in the ratings in the pre-season, assisting in the development of
preventive programs to injuries. The goal of this study was to perform a descriptive analysis of parameters related to muscular performance of female professional football athletes in the pre-season
phase.


Methods:participated in this study 27 female professional football athletes belonging to a participant team of the elite of Brazilian soccer. The mean age of the players was 25.81 ±
3.58 years, the stature of 1.66 ± 0.25 m and body mass, 64.02 ± 7,35kg. An isokinetic dynamometer (Biodex System 4) was used to evaluate the muscular performance of the athletes in the knee joint.
Assessments occurred only in the presentation of the players for the pre season the Brazilian League. For evaluation of flexor and extensor muscles of the knee, the speeds used were 60°/s, 180°/s and
300°/s.


Results: The results (mean ± standard deviation) of peak torque (normalized by body mass of each individual) were of 180.85 ± 25.46 for dominant leg and 177.07 ± 26.09 for
non-dominant leg during extension and 102.02 ± 16.88 to dominant leg and 93.33 ± 14.37 for non-dominant leg during flexion, valued at 60°/s. The average power of knee extensors were 226.04 ± 29.43 for
dominant leg and 218.76 ± 27.73 for non-dominant leg and 154.04 ± 22.09 to dominant leg and 142.45 ± 24.36 to non-dominant leg during flexion, valued at 180°/s. The average results of total work were
1982.33 ± 217.95 in dominant leg and 2004.14 ± 221.003 for non-dominant leg during extension and 1600.74 ± 339.54 to dominant leg and 1598.33 ±  351.94 for non-dominant leg during flexion, measured at
a speed of 300 ° / s. The agonist / antagonist relationship was 55.46 ± 5.97 to dominant leg and 52.11 ± 5.15 for non-dominant leg, valued at 60°/s.


Conclusions: The results of this study provide the isokinetic muscle performance reference values of professional athletes in women's football. In this sense, normative data allow the
comparison of test results of an athlete with the reference values of their group, enabling to establish a level of muscular performance to be struck with training.
