Objetivo – El objetivo del presente estudio consistió en establecer valores de referencia para futbolistas profesionales en una serie de test funcionales seleccionados previamente.

Método – Durante dos temporadas (2012/13 y 2013/14) y en tres momentos distintos de las mismas, 42 futbolistas profesionales fueron evaluados funcionalmente mediante las siguientes pruebas: CMJ (salto bipodal), 5 m Shuttle Run Sprint Test (velocidad/agilidad), Test de Barrow (agilidad), Y Balance Test (control postural), Single Hop Test y Triple Hop Test (salto unipodal).

Resultados – Los valores medios obtenidos fueron: CMJ (40.25±4.13cm), 5 m Shuttle Run Sprint Test (10.89±0.38 segundos), Test de Barrow (7.46±0.27 segundos), Y Balance asimetría derecha (4.63±2.16%), Y Balance asimetría izquierda (3.91±2.25%), Single Hop Test derecha (2.06±0.11 metros), Single Hop Test izquierda (2.07±0.12 metros), Triple Hop Test derecha (6.87±0.29 metros) y Triple Hop Test izquierda (6.83±0.31).

Conclusión – Este trabajo contribuye aportando valores de referencia que puedan ser utilizados para cuantificar el grado de recuperación funcional durante la recuperación de un futbolista profesional lesionado.
