Preseason: Low volume & always avoiding fatigue?
Scientific Poster: Pilot Study – Tracking Session RPE TRIMP During an NCAA D1 Men’s Soccer Season with Special Emphasis on Practical Application
Sport Science Poster: Between the Polar Team2 Training Load and Session-RPE Training Load as Methods of Monitoring Training and Games in NCAA Division 1 Male Soccer Players
The effectiveness of the strength and conditioning coach
Monitoring training part I – can’t see the wood for the trees
Monitoring training part II – using RPEs to track intensity & volume
