Self-assessment of overtraining

Posted in Rowing planning & analysis, with 2 Comments

Overtraining should be diagnosed with parameters that are easy and inexpensive to use and which will not disturb the training process.

Unfortunately, a valid parameter that can help coaches and athletes to control training is difficult to find. Moreover, an individual response is very different; therefore athletes should be monitored continuously and analyzed individually. Much of this can be done by athletes themselves during everyday training.

  1. Hello Jarek,
    As a surgeon physiologist I enjoy your site very much. recently you posted a link to Xeno Muller’s 1996 gold medal single scull. The version you posted has the sports announcer’s version for the entire race. Can you kindly send me the link. I am using it for teaching purposes.

    Thank you
