Deakin University Athlete Monitoring Programe
02 Feb 2014
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.
