Mitigating Injury Risk During Periods of Fixture Congestion: Tracking Athlete Wellness
Our latest ebook, Mitigating Injury Risk During Periods of Fixture Congestion, looks at strategic ways in which performance staff can help their athletes better cope with the demands of fixture congestion.
Examining methods by which training schedules can be periodised, as well as discussing the importance of squad preparation and wellness factors such as diet and sleep, each chapter is focused on how performance can be optimised during the most demanding periods of the season.
When we talk about wellness in the context of elite performance, we are generally referring to the monitoring of factors like diet, sleep and perceived exertion in training sessions. If combined with data-driven load management processes, this type of work can provide valuable additional insights into how individual athletes are coping with the rigours of a congested schedule.
