Internal Training Load Monitoring Using PerceptionBased Measures

0 Comment

Training loads are always adjusted at various times during the cycle of training to either increase or decrease the levels of fatigue depending on the training phase. Fatigue is a phenomenon that is complex and multifaceted having several mechanisms that are possible.

Monitoring the training load of individuals is seen by many people as an important factor in the determination of whether an individual is adapting to the program of training or not. It is also important to minimise having the risk of non-functional overreaching, illness, and injury. Today, monitoring training load has become a common thing, and several reasons lie behind the practice. Inexperience and knowledge on the use of monitoring load techniques may lead to an inability to implement a sustainable and practical system and inability to interpret the collected information.

In order to gain the knowledge and understanding of the training load and its general effect on an athlete, several markers are available for the coaches, scientists and athletes to use. Nonetheless, few of these markers do have scientific evidence that is strong in support of their usage, and there is yet to have a single one in practice (Viveiros et al. 2011).
When monitoring training load, the units of the load are thought of as either internal or external. In the past, external training load was frequently used as the foundation of a several systems of monitoring. Whereas the external load is important in knowing the completed work, capabilities, and the athletes’ capacities, the internal load forms the critical part in determining the training load and the after that adaptation.

The training load is influenced in most cases by the volume and intensity of training. A precise knowledge of the training loads that are completed during training is beneficial to the coach as well as the athlete. The coach can use the feedback gotten from training to modify the training in the future to improve performance.&nbsp.
