When progressing training loads, what are the considerations for healthy and injured athletes? [Editorial]

Gabbett, Tim and Sancho, Igor and Dingenan, Bart and Willy, Richard W. (2021) When progressing training loads, what are the considerations for healthy and injured athletes? [Editorial]. British Journal of Sports Medicine, 55 (17). pp. 1-11. ISSN 0306-3674


Abstract

Every sport requires specific physical capacities to enable success and minimise injury risk. For instance, a competitive runner requires adequate muscular force production to counter ground reaction forces for a single step at a given speed (local tissue capacity), and the muscular and cardiovascular endurance to tolerate the accumulation of steps for the time and distance of the
event (sport-specific capacity). Failing to adequately develop these physical qualities may result in underperformance and/or increased injury risk. In this editorial we explore how to optimally monitor and
progress training loads to improve local tissue and sport-specific capacity.
