Autoregulation Training - Monitoring Practice with and without a Budget
by Josh Wildeman, MA, CSCS, RSCC / River Van Zant, CSCS

The concept of utilizing Autoregulation Training and adapting an athlete's training program based on their individual state of readiness on that day is a common practice in the field of strength and conditioning. There are a number of high-tech devices to monitor sleep, workload/exertion, heart rate, etc. to provide the strength & conditioning coach with extensive data to make these training program adaptations. This technology is extremely beneficial, and we will briefly review current research, trends, and equipment, as well as their implementation. However, the reality is that with exception of some Power 5 programs and professional organizations, most strength and conditioning staff's do not have the budget, time, or staff resources to utilize these technologies. In this presentation, we will also explain how you can monitor athlete stress and readiness in an efficient, subjective manner without the costs of this high-priced technology and get the information you need to make sound programming decisions.

The Critical Power Model: What Is It and How to Use It?
by Cody Strom, PhD

The critical power (CP) concept is an underutilized concept using the 3-minute all out test (3MT) to help determine an athlete's CP and anaerobic work output (D' or W'). CP is generally defined as the boundary that separates steady-state oxygen consumption (Moderate to Heavy Domain of exercise) and the slow component to VO2max (Severe Domain). The D' or W' is described as capacity to maintain workloads above CP. Coaches that understand this concept can utilize this model in many different ways. Coaches can differentiate their long distance vs sprint athletes, thus putting them in positions where they can best succeed. Coaches can utilized the data to individualize the athlete's training program. Coaches can even use it to predict an athlete's performance in certain events to achieve the best time. In this presentation, the critical power model will be explained, how to determine an athlete's CP and D'/W', and how we can utilized them as coaches to get the best out of each of our athletes.
