Spreker : Dr. Tim Gabbett
Sport medicine practitioners (physicians, physical therapists, and strength & conditioning coaches) all share a common goal; they wish to maximise the positive (i.e. fitness) and minimise the negative (i.e. fatigue, injury, illness) consequences of training. Optimising training load for individual athletes, represents a tangible approach for achieving these aims. However, there is often a disconnect between the research evidence on training load and the actual prescription of athlete’s training programs. This public lecture will discuss the evidence on training load, injury and performance from the perspective of a practitioner who has spent a career combining work in high performance sport and research in athletic populations. Practical advice for monitoring athlete training loads and promoting effective working relationships among practitioners will also be discussed.
