An interesting article on the psychological aspects of recovery: “The Kellmann model relies on the recovery-stress questionnaire for sport (RESTQ Sport), which can identify athletes who underrecover. The RESTQ-Sport is part of psychological follow-up to training, where it can be used to track the progression of stress and recovery indicators for individual athletes. The recovery scales specific to sport (see items 16 to 19 in the following section) relate to perceived physical condition, relationship with team members, confidence, and motivation. The questionnaire identifies athletes whose stress recovery is inadequate, given the intensity of the training-induced workload.”

Omegawave gives you data on your recovery without using any questionnaires, have a look at our website!
Today we continue with Part 2 of the most common errors associated with training for high performance. (Reference: M.Lambert, I.Mujika (2013). Overtraining Prevention; D.J.Smith (2003). A framework for understanding the training process leading to elite performance. Sports Med 33(15):1103–1126.)
A review study by Smith (2003) set out a comprehensive framework of the components of performance and training that should be addressed when developing short- and long-term training plans for elite performance. This review also summarized the most common errors associated with training for high performance. Part 2 is coming tomorrow - stay tuned!

Traditional periodization places the training volume and intensity as the point of control, regardless of the athlete’s functional state. In contrast, Omegawave’s approach situates the athlete as the object of control, adjusting their workout to accommodate their daily functional state. Due to the vast genetic and environmental variability between athletes, it is crucial that the training process remain fluid rather than fixed. The graphs you can see in the picture represent the conventional training approach, contrasted with our method of athletic development.

The standard supercompensation curve is simple, straightforward, and linear. However, due to the unique genetic makeup of each athlete and the differing situational stressors present at the time of a training stimulus, the curves and durations of supercompensation can vary drastically between individuals. Likewise, one system may achieve supercompensation while at the same time others may fail to do so. Reference: Morris, Chris. Omegawave: Theory and Practice (2015). www.omegawave.com/...

The supercompensation model implies that the human organism will uniformly adapt to all training stimuli regardless of training type (cardiovascular, strength, power, etc.). In this model, the only factors that can influence the rate of supercompensation are the volume and intensity of the training session. This theory portrays the human system as a whole, failing to recognize the individual systems that are depleted during a given training session. In reality, supercompensation is better illustrated by the following figure (see the picture). Reference: Morris, Chris. Omegawave: Theory and Practice (2015). "Omegawave: Theory and Practice".

We have seen concrete 🇯🇵🇫🇮 co-operation recently: Gacha bus with @sensible4ltd & Muji, Denso moved here into @agrid_aalto, @Omegawave will work with the Japanese swimming team. This kind of cases are why we have the #Espoo Japan #Innovation Hub. @GlennGassen #espooinnovation
