Background Since 2000, there has been a rapid growth in training load and injury research. In the past 5 years alone, a total of 38 studies (from as many as 24 different research groups, and 11 different sports) have investigated the relationship between loading profiles and injury. Despite the growing body of literature examining training load and injury, there is often a disconnect between this evidence and the actual training programmes prescribed in practice. In this paper, some common myths...

Background When progressing an athlete from rehabilitation to peak performance, load must exceed load-capacity. When gradual, systematic increases in load are applied, load-capacity will improve. H...

Traditional calculations of the acute:chronic workload ratio (ACWR) are ‘mathematically coupled’, as the most recent week is included in estimates of both the acute and chronic workloads. As Lolli and colleagues rightly point out, this induces a spurious correlation between the acute and chronic loads of ~0.50 (r=0.52 in their simulated data of 1000 athletes).1 They suggest that the simplest solution is to use uncoupled ACWRs (where the acute load is not part of the chronic load) instead (figure...

Australian rules football is a challenging contact sport requiring high levels of fitness and skill. In the last two decades, hamstring strain injuries have remained an ongoing problematic issue, constituting a large proportion of soft tissue injuries sustained in the elite Australian Football League (AFL).1 The predominant injury mechanism for hamstring strain injuries is sprinting,2 …

Abstract Objectives To automate the detection of ruck and tackle events in rugby union using a specifically-designed algorithm based on microsensor data. Design Cross-sectional study. Methods Elite rugby union players wore microtechnology devices (Catapult, S5) during match-play. Ruck (n = 125) and tackle (n = 125) event data was synchronised with video footage compiled from international rugby union match-play ruck and tackle events. A specifically-designed algorithm to detect ruck and tackle e...

In the modern technological age, practitioners are exposed to a wealth of information from many diverse sources. Social media has resulted in rapid distribution of research evidence. As soon as an article appears on the journal website, those with the fastest fingers and thumbs will have the paper ‘posted’, ‘tweeted’ or ‘blogged’. Without doubt, social media has assisted researchers to distribute their findings to (hopefully) enhance translation to the ‘real world’. But how well does a single 14...
