Acute to Chronic Workload Ratio Monitoring for Athlete Performance

November 1, 2015

Article Members Only

High chronic workloads have been shown to be associated with a reduced risk of non-contact, soft tissue injuries, while large spikes in acute training loads have been associated with an increased risk of these types of injury. Analyzing the acute:chronic workload ratio allows a coach to optimize training for the athlete and to continue in advancing fitness goals without overtraining.

Nutrition for Adolescent Female Team Sport Athletes: A Review

Quiz CATD 0.2

Adequate nutrition generally promotes training adaptations and thus optimal performance. Adolescence is characterized by a pubescence growth spurt, increasing energy and nutrient needs. Most team sports literature focuses on male athletes, with little on adolescent female team sports. Adolescent female athletes are at an increased risk of inadequate energy, and micronutrient intakes because of the pursuit of high fitness levels, and society pressures. This may cause hormonal irregularities, delayed development, poor bone health, and increased risk of injury. This review synthesizes information on the nutritional needs of adolescent female team sport players for performance and health.

PTQ 7.2 TRAINING CLIENTS WITH SHOULDER INJURY— MODIFICATIONS AND CONSIDERATIONS

Quiz CATB 0.2

The current trend in healthcare is leading to a quicker discharge from physical therapy and, for many clients, a quicker transition back to personal training. Thus, physical and occupational therapists are looking to collaborate with personal trainers who have a working knowledge of the shoulder to aide in the safe transition from rehabilitation to performance. As noted in NSCA’s Guide to Program Design, this collaboration will help prevent personal trainers and strength and conditioning coaches from being pushed outside their area of expertise and will ultimately help safely return clients and athletes to their respective fitness pursuits and sports. A knowledge of shoulder exercise modifications and progressions can help reduce the risk of re-injury and maximize performance.
