A new study shows that soccer players’ training output can be predicted by perceived pre-training wellness and that a reduction in subjective wellness translates in reduced performance on the field (total high speed distance, high speed distance, maximal velocity, etc).

Using apps such as  AthleteMonitoring.com to administer and interpret pre-training wellness questionnaires can provide coaches with crucial information about how each player can be expected to perform every day, and help to proactively adapt individual daily workload to the wellness and fatigue level of the athletes, in order to minimize the risk of injury and optimize recovery and performance.
