Optimise Your Training with Athlete Monitoring
WHY USE AN ATHLETE MONITORING PROGRAM?
Athletic preparation requires the careful balancing of stress (training) and recovery. Insufficient stress leads to under-performance, whereas insufficient recovery leads to overtraining, injury and illness. Therefore it is important to monitor the balance of stress and recovery throughout the season to:
- • detect and intervene when things aren’t going as planned,
- • look back and learn from, and
- • ultimately improve athletic performance.
However anecdotal evidence and previous research by our team suggest there may be further beneficial outcomes beyond this which warrant further investigation.
