Training Loads

Firstbeat Feature

TRIMP – This popular metric increases according to exertion intensity throughout the session. The harder an athlete works, the faster their TRIMP score grows.

Training Effect: Aerobic – See how a session will impact the development of aerobic performance capacity, measurable in terms of VO2max. Firstbeat White Paper

Training Effect: Anaerobic – See how a session will impact the development of anaerobic performance capacity, like short bursts of high-intensity activity. Firstbeat White Paper

EPOC – Measure physical activity in terms of the amount of work the body will perform to restore itself and adapt in preparation for the next challenge. Firstbeat White Paper

Training Load – Track the total impact of physical activity over the most recent 7-day period.

Energy Expenditure: Oxygen consumption based intensity tracking results in enhanced accuracy for calorie counts. Firstbeat White Paper

Automatically created individual and group feedback reports provide you with all the information you need about a specific session in one place.

We can show that the data we get is actually useful for the players…One outcome of our monitoring is it helps players learn to manage themselves. The players are able to anticipate many of these values themselves which indicated an improved awareness of how their body is working

It also allows us to talk to coach and show him ‘Hey, our workloads these past two weeks are getting really high, a bunch of guys are in the red. We should cancel practice/back off’
