Dr Martin Buchheit

Dr. Martin Buchheit started in July 2014 to work as the Head of the Performance Department at Paris Saint Germain Football Club (France). He previously worked as a FootballPhysiologist in ASPIRE Academy for Sports Excellence in Qatar (2009-2014). He earned two Masters in Research &Exercise Physiology and Statistics, two Masters in strength and conditioning, and a PhD in Exercise Physiology. He has worked as Strength & Conditioning coach for several years in professional team Handball (mean, women and youth French national teams) and has been the Strength & Conditioning consultant of several federations and professional teams (soccer, handball, basketball, rugby, AFL) and individual athletes (triathlon, runners, cyclists, swimmers).

His main research interests focus on assessing (via testing and match analyses), improving and monitoring the physiological determinants of soccer performance, with an emphasis on developing (youth) players. Based on his field and research experiences, he has developed the 30-15 Intermittent Fitness Tests (an intermittent field-running test used worldwide in team and racquet sports) to improve high-intensity training prescription, and the 5’-5’ running test to track changes in training status using heart rate variability. He has also performed some research on acute and chronic responses to hypoxic and/or heat exposure, and theirpossible effects on the physiological aspects of team sports. Martin has now published more than 150 papers in peer-reviewed journals, with more than 100 as a first author.
