Lesson #8. Reverse calculator of the training impulse in the operational planning of the training process
Reverse training impulse calculator is a tool for calculating the relationship between the heart rate and duration of the training exercises, at which the specified planned value of TRIMP is
reached during the training with heart rate monitoring. The initial data for the calculation is the planned value of TRIMP. The results of the calculation are a calculation table or a nomogram of heart rate-duration, according to which the coach or athlete determines the working heart rate and the duration of the training exercise to achieve the planned value of TRIMP.
In this inverse problem, an athlete is used for multiple calculation of model time profiles of lactate concentration in blood for various levels of physical activity. This tool is necessary for the coach and athlete when they solve the task of implementing the current training plan by dosing physical exertion in
a separate training exercise in order to produce a specifically planned value of TRIMP.
This video lesson demonstrates the implementation of technological Unit 8 with optimal planning of the training process.
TECHNOLOGICAL UNITS FOR PLANNING A TRAINING PROCESS
With the optimal planning of the training process based on TRIMP technology, the coach and other specialists of the coaching staff should be able to solve a number of practical problems. The following list of these tasks determines the necessary conditions for the practical implementation of the training process optimal planning based on the physiological avatar technology and the training impulse.
Unit 1. Maintaining an individual physiological profile (IPP) for each athlete of the coaching group (team). The IPP should contain data from standard anthropometry, as well as estimates of the maximum and minimum values of TRIMP (wmin,wmax).
Unit 2. Maintain an individual sports calendar for each athlete in the team, indicating days of competitions as well as “special” days when the competitive or training load cannot be performed or has to be limited (days of illness, injuries, relocations, etc.).
Unit 3. Keeping a journal of physiological observations (JPO) for the team and for each athlete in the format of observation packages of the “Physiological Avatar” technology. The data of the JPO are necessary to create the current collection of the athlete’s PA. Maintenance of the JPO requires a modern laboratory of sports medicine equipped with necessary measuring equipment.
Unit 4. Managing the process of creating and using the PA collection for each athlete in the team. PAs are created in the identification factory on the basis of initial data of the IPP and the JPO. For each team athlete, at least one current PA must be created.
Unit 5. Keeping for each athlete in the team his/her athletic form log. This log records expert
judgments of the athletic form by the results of competitions, or by results of special tests that are similar to the conditions of actual competitions.
Unit 6. Keeping for each athlete in the team his/her training load log. The log records TRIMP
values achieved by the athlete during training exercises with physical exertion, and also during competitions.
Unit 7. Designing optimal current training plans for each athlete in the team. Recalculation of the optimal current training plans for the new current data, i.e. realization of adaptive optimal planning of the training process.
Unit 8. Implementation of current training plans by assigning training load to athletes in accordance with the planned daily value of TRIMP.
