Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of strength training with elastic bands on hip strength in soccer players, the effect measured with hand-held dynamometry. The primary outcomes are isometric and eccentric hip adduction strength. The hypothesis is that strength training with elastic bands will result in a clinical relevant increase in hip adduction strength.
