Training prescription is a delicate balancing act of tissue-loading. Overload a client, and they may suffer setbacks in the form of pain, swelling, and tissue damage. But, conversely, underloading will affect the development of the physical capacities necessary for performance in their sport. One plausible solution to the training prescription problems described above is the concept of autoregulation. Autoregulation is a training periodization approach that aims to adjust training prescription to the athlete’s daily capabilities
The prescription of physical training is a challenging task because human performance is affected by a range of interrelated factors. Navigating this complex space is best achieved through an agile planning approach where training prescription is adjusted in response to adaptation and fatigue. This presentation discusses planning frameworks that allow for responsive training prescription. Topic to be covered include iterative planning cycles, autoregulation, non-linear periodisation, velocity based training and the use of GPS.
What makes an athlete’s motor skills fail when they need them most? Jason Tee investigates this phenomenon and reveals surprising and important implications for performance, injury prevention, and rehabilitation.
This course develops a fundamental understanding of strength and conditioning training principles to be applied into injury rehabilitation. The course consists of both theory and practical based sessions including case studies and program design. ***Cape Town 4 to 5 September 2021***
I was asked this question recently by one of the South African Super Rugby franchises, who were concerned about how to manage their players into the end stages of the season. Below are my thoughts on the theoretical threshold for injury
This talk explores a robust process for prioritising training goals for athletes participating at a semi-professional, university level. The process described advocates for first developing movement proficiency, before developing, strength, power and energy system capacities. The second half of this talk explores the use of various technologies to inform the training process.
Modeling training to prevent injury. Athletes walk on a tight rope - if they don't train exceptionally hard, they won't be competitive. If they train too hard they start suffering from fatigue and maladaptation. This talk explores contemporary methods of assessing and reporting athletes response to training to guide them through this process.
