Unit: Metres per second (m/s)
PLAYERTEK measures top speed as the maximum speed sustained for at least half a second.
For most players, 8.5 m/s (30.6 kmph) is considered fast. However, Arjen Robben
has exceeded 9.5 m/s while Usain Bolt regularly exceeds 11 m/s.
Distance per Minute
Unit: Metres per minute (m/min)
Metres per minute give an overall good representation of how hard and intensely you have worked.
Professional players will reach between 100-120 m/min in a typical game.
Unit: Watts per kilogram (w/kg)
Power score measures the power output used per kilogram of your weight. It is a useful tool to gauge the intensity of training drills where high work-rate within a small area is evident.
Small-sided games (SSG) are considered intense when the Power Score is above 10 w/kg. In amateur football, values of 7 to 8 are more normal.
Unit: Percentage (%)
This is defined as the percentage of total time during which the player was performing some work. Work is defined as walking or running at speeds higher than 1.5 m/s (that’s moderate to slow walk for most of us).
Work ratio therefore indicates the amount of time a player is working compared to resting. For a standard game or a small-sided drill.
