Workload Management

Keep athletes fit, healthy, and ready to win

Athlete injury and illness is a major problem

Poor load management causes injuries and illnesses

Frequency is alarming

1.5M high school and college athletes are injured in the US every year, while every hour, 172 student-athletes suffer a sports injury severe enough to seek medical attention.

Costs are enormous

Injuries can cause athletes’ to drop-out from sport, negatively affect his/her long term health and often place an increased burden on the health care system.

Athletes can be overtrained or undertrained

Athletes who are training intensively walk a fine line between peak performance and health issues. Training too much (or to little) will inevitably result in disappointing performance, illnesses or injury.

We can help

AthleteMonitoring.com uses evidence-based methods to provides you with a real-time picture of each athlete’s risk of injury and readiness. It helps you adjust training programs based on individual response to load, and improve performance safely.

Keep athletes in the ‘high performance-low risk’ zone

Load, injuries and performance are closely tied. AthleteMonitoring.com helps you monitor the individual load-performance-injury relationship and maximize athletic potential safely

The Acute:Chronic Workload Ratio (ACWR) is a crucial workload management metric that measure the relationship between acute load (3-7 day load) and chronic load (21-28 day average load). Monitoring ACWR helps to keep athletes in the ‘high-load, low-risk zone’ and maximize performance while minimizing the risk of injuries. (Adapted from: Foster, 1996; Gabbett TJ, 2016)

Risk is Multifaceted–Everything Counts

AthleteMonitoring.com helps you monitor risk factors in real time, and optimize workload using a holistic approach

AthleteMonitoring.com in Practice

How it works

Athletes complete a short wellness questionnaire every morning and a quick post-session questionnaire.

AthleteMonitoring alerts coaches when an athlete is not ready for a hard training day, when risk increases and provide ‘how-to-fix’ recommendations.

1

AthleteMonitoring analyse wellness (fatigue, stress, sleep quality, etc), readiness and workload metrics (acute:chronic workload ratio, week to week load increase, monotony, strain, etc.) and identify individual issues using evidence-based algorithms and published risk thresholds.
Coach can then make an informed decision and adapt the athlete’s program based on the athletes’ individual workload alerts, fatigue (physical and psychological), wellness, fitness, health and recovery levels.

Did you know?

When workload increases by ≥15 % from the preceding week, the risk of injury can increase by up to 50 %

"This season we only had one soft tissue injury. I’ve been with the Lions for 6 seasons and that is by far our best result. The Mitre 10 competition is brutal with the tight schedule meaning numerous short turnarounds. AthleteMonitoring provided us with a quick centralised system that we used heavily when prescribing training/recovery at both the team and individual level."
Dave Walsh Head Strength and Conditioning Coach, Wellington Lions

After years trying other systems and using spreadsheets, now I save hours per week to do more useful things, and at the same time have access to more valuable information.
