Abstract

Introduction: The aim of this study was to examine the effect of two concurrent
resistance-plyometric and small sided game methods on pro-inflammatory in youth soccer
players.
Methods: 30 youth soccer players with a range of 14 to 17 years of age were divided
randomly in three groups, SSG (n=8), resistance-plyometric (n=11) and control (n=11).
Height, weight, BMI and VO2max of the subjects were measured. The next day, blood
samples from the anterior brachial vein of subjects were taken. The experimental groups
participated in their exercise program (8 week, 2 sessions per week plus three current
sessions). All variables were measured again after 8 weeks. In order to compare data within
groups' Dependent t-test was used and for comparison between groups Independent t-test
was used by SPSS 17.
Results: The findings showed that after 8 weeks of SSG training plasma level of IL-6 and
TNF-α increased significantly. The results in other groups did not show significant change
(pvlue≥0.05).
Conclusion: SSG training can induce a catabolic environment in youth soccer players'
body.
