This project will establish a clearer understanding of the relationship between player load, injury, and performance in elite football, with the aim of developing a model that extends our current understanding of how load monitoring may be applied to assess adaptation and responses to training demands, and minimise the risk of non-functional over-reaching, injury and illness.
Monitoring athlete load is a current hot topic and an evolving science, and professional sports teams are investing substantial resources on gathering an array of metrics to profile training and competition demands and athlete responses.
