Soccer, running and health for women
Over a period of two years, 30 scientists lead by Associate Professor Peter Krustrup, University of Copenhagen, have investigated physiological, sociological and psychological aspects of women’s soccer in comparison to running as exercise. 100 untrained adult premenopausal women have participated in the study.
The women (65 participated in the physiological study) were randomly divided into three groups: One soccer group, one running group and one control group. The soccer players and runners trained twice a week for one hour. After four and sixteen weeks, all the subjects went through extensive physiological tests. The same 65 subjects + another 35 soccer playing women were continually observed and interviewed to study the sociological and psychological effects of their training.
