Monitoring endurance athletes : A multidisciplinary approach

  title={Monitoring endurance athletes : A multidisciplinary approach},
  author={Ruby T A Otter},
Endurance athletes seek for the optimal balance in training stress and recovery so they can perform at their best and avoid injuries. The PhD thesis of Ruby Otter at the School of Sport Studies (Hanze University of Applied Sciences) and the Center of Human Movement Sciences (UMCG, University of Groningen) showed that not only physical stress and recovery, but also psychosocial stress and recovery influence performance and injury risk of endurance athletes. During the research project, 115…

The importance of recovery for elite athletes is highlighted and an overview of monitoring instruments is provided to assist with research that addresses the avoidance of overtraining, maximizes recovery, and successfully negotiates the fine line between high and excessive training loads.

Assessing stress and recovery during preparation for the world championships in rowing.

Training stress and adequate recovery have been identified as important factors to enhance performance in sports and to avoid overtraining. Research dealing with training monitoring and overtraining

Changes in perceived stress and recovery in overreached young elite soccer players

The longitudinal monitoring of performance and changes in stress and recovery may be useful for the detection of OR in its earliest stage and can be used to optimize individual training and recovery programs.

High intensity and reduced volume training attenuates stress and recovery levels in elite swimmers

It is indicated that increasing training intensity and reducing training volume for 12 weeks can reduce general stress and increase general recovery levels in competitive swimmers.

Monitoring Training Load to Understand Fatigue in Athletes

Monitoring of training load can provide important information to athletes and coaches; however, monitoring systems should be intuitive, provide efficient data analysis and interpretation, and enable efficient reporting of simple, yet scientifically valid, feedback.

Monitoring of Performance and Training in Rowing

The Recovery-Stress Questionnaire for Athletes measures both stress and recovery, and may therefore be more effective than the previously used Borg ratio scale or the Profile of Mood States, which both focus mainly on the stress component.

A tool for measuring stress tolerance in elite athletes

Abstract A self-report inventory of sources of life-stress and symptoms of stress is described. The tool can be used to determine the nature of an athlete's response to training, particularly his/her

Role of psychological stress in cortisol recovery from exhaustive exercise among elite athletes

It is suggested that chronic stress prolongs the recovery process, which may potentially widen a window of susceptibility for illness and injury among competitive athletes.

The Effect of Endurance Training on Parameters of Aerobic Fitness

The importance of improvements in the aerobic fitness parameters to the enhancement of endurance performance is highlighted, as are the training methods that may be considered optimal for facilitating such improvements.
