Training Stress Balance Workbook Con’t

# Training Stress Balance Workbook Con’t

In the previous video I was talking about two different methods of calculating Training Stress Balance and underlying assumptions. In this short addendum I will explain even better method of calculating TSB by combining good parts of previous two, discuss differences between calculus of TSB for “daily data” (e.g. training load) versus “occasional data” (e.g. HRV, readiness metrics) and EMA or Exponential Moving Averages calculations.

In this blog post I will share with you the Excel workbook you can play with, and also the screen cast of me explain how to use the TSB method.

I was involved in physical preparation of professional, amateur and recreational athletes of various ages in sports such as basketball, soccer, volleyball, martial arts and tennis. Read More »

Really enjoying the view this method brings to looking at loads. Is there any chance you’re able to integrate this into the annual planner 2.0 as an update?

Hi,

Good idea. One option is to record your daily loads in monitoring sheet and use that for analysis – it already have two rolling averages.

I will be releasing much better product that has all of this integrated already. Watch this space! 🙂

Thanks, I think i’ll work with that for the mean time.

That’s exciting! Any rough timeframe you can give us as to when you think it will be out? Love your other products so i’m keen to see this one when it’s ready!

It is pretty much ready. I am just waiting for developers to move it from demo site to the real one.

based in your table i made for RPE / strain and monotony you think its valid?

24/03/2015 at 21:40 #16177

Yes. The only problem might be days off with SD formula. In this case you HAVE to enter 0s are days off

Do you think it would be valid/essential to combine sRPE loads from GPP sessions with GPS player loads from SPP? Or would it make most sense to just use GPS loads and monitor SPP sessions exclusively? Thanks.

Not sure I understand the question

For example: Monday, Wednesday, Friday we practice (SPP) utilizing GPS to monitor Load, and Tuesday & Thursday we have S&C sessions (GPP) utilizing sRPE to monitor load. So within a week we would have 5 days worth of Load values, but from two different methods of monitoring load. In my experience, sRPE values are always higher than GPS Player Loads, all things being equal, I’m wondering if you think it’s valid to combine two different methods of monitoring load? Hope that made sense, thanks.

Not sure to be honest. sRPE is shown to correlate with “aerobic” activities – not sure how it correlates with tonnage, volume or whatever metric we use for the strength training.

You can keep two variables or more: GPS loads for SPP and tonnage/volume, amount of work for S&C (strength)
