He forward-sprint is considered to be, and is regularly performed as, a unique measure of “on-ground” linear- speed performance. Thus far, no investigation has simultaneo usly studied different forms of linear-speed or investigated whether different forms of linear-speed should be observed as unique performance quality. The purpose of this study was to determine (I) the achievements (i.e. execution time), and (II) the reliability and inter-relationships between various linear-speed performances. The participants were 42 male physical education st udents with substantial sport-specific backgrounds. We applied a total of six tests: three quad rupedal (supine backward, supine forward, and pronate backward locomotion) and three bipedal-pe rformances (forward sprinting, backward sprinting, latera l shuffling). All of the tests showed appropriate reliability parameters (Cronbach Al pha ranged from 0.91 to 0. 97 ; Inter-Item-R 0.78-0.92 ; Coefficient-of-Variation 1.3-9.1). The tests used in this study shared between 9% and 50% of the common variance. Our results suggest that differen t activities require activity-specific tests of lin ear-speed. This is particularly significant in those sports and activities in which quadrupedal locomotion patterns are highly important (wrestling, physically trained military services, law enforcement, fire and rescue, protective services).
