In this webinar, Veli-Pekka Kurunmäki, Firstbeat’s Director of Sports Performance Products, sits down with Head of Physiology Research Tero Myllymäki to discuss the introduction of the exciting new Player Status Analysis to the Firstbeat Sports platform.
Attendees will learn about the research and work leading up to this point and how Player Status Analysis will contribute to better training decisions that allow athletes to optimize training with reduced risk of injury.
Together, Kurunmäki and Myllymäki will outline key elements of the analysis including workloads calculated, acute/chronic workload ratios as proxies for fitness and fatigue, their relationship to injury risk, and the utilization of performance readiness checks to enhance the analysis.
They will then describe how these elements are effortlessly drawn together and analyzed in an innovative way to deliver streamlined, easy to communicate and put to use insights. As a result, working professionals can offer better, scientifically-grounded training guidance, spend less time crunching numbers, and focus on aspects of coaching and training that benefit from a human touch.
Examples and lessons gleaned from hockey and soccer teams participating in the Player Status Analysis pilot program will be shared for practical demonstrations along the way.
