An artificial neural network approach to pinpoint performance and training load in team sports. (PhD Project)
To elicit peak performance in sports, training programs should be carefully developed to produce the desired physiological adaptations. In particular, the physical internal training load (ITL) is one of the parameters that is controlled to elicit the desiderate workout response and to avoid injuries. Along with ITL, external training load (ETL) is a crucial component of athletic performance, especially during jumps and plyometric actions in general. During training and competition in volleyball, players who perform a large number of plyometric actions result in a decrease in neuromuscular power performance during jumps because the acute skeletal muscle fatigue. Considering that technical and tactical performance in volleyball, as well as the players' wellbeing could be affected by both the internal and external training load, they can be used as the primary outcome when monitoring athletes' wellbeing and technical and tactical performance.
