Despite the engaging discussion concerning the mechanisms of fatigue during exercise, one common theme seems apparent; that the underlying mechanisms are intensity and duration dependent. As expected, the debate regarding the definition, presence and mechanisms of exercise-induced fatigue centres heavily on findings of laboratory investigations. However, presently there is little evidence from ecologically valid, field-based settings to support this laboratory evidence. From the view of the Exercise and Sports Sciences, a central tenant of the research into the mechanisms of fatigue is to transfer the findings back to an applied setting to understand exercise performance in the field. Accordingly, many laboratory studies have investigated mechanisms responsible for the amelioration or termination of exercise performance. However, particularly for team sports, the poor ecological validity of exercise protocols used restricts application of the findings to the field.
