Training Stress Balance Workbook: Two Methods of Calculation and Assumptions

Training Stress Balance Workbook: Two Methods of Calculation and Assumptions

In the previous post on Training Stress Balance I explained how easy it is to use this method to get quick insights into all your time-series data (i.e. load, HRV, readiness metrics and so forth). As said earlier this method comes from using power meters in cycling and were pioneered by Allen and Coggan (see Training and Racing with Power Meter).

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 am also discussing  different pro’s and con’s of two very similar ways of calculating Chronic and Acute Load and their assumptions.

If you are dealing with real-world data sets then this is a MUST see video, since I go into fragility~robustness of both methods in dealing with missing data and underlying assumptions. The video lasts 12 minutes and covers everything you might deal with as data/performance analyst utilizing TSB method in real world with real data sets.
