Running the numbers: How integrated assessment of physiology and biomechanics can optimise and improve an athlete’s endurance performance
Until recently, the ability to access valid, reliable and actionable information regarding an athlete’s physiology and mechanics has been restricted to predominantly academic institutions or high-profile, professional sports. Yet the power of data not visible to the naked eye continues to unlock human potential in a range of activities. This workshop will provide unique insight into the latest clinic-based assessment of running physiology and biomechanics using an integrated strategy. Key concepts associated with how an athlete utilises their energy systems and translates to movement patterns at various intensities will be laid out and applied in real-time.
Key measurement techniques will be introduced and the relevance of the key indicators explained in relation to individualised training. Attendees will be exposed to the benefits of sports science testing and will leave with increased confidence in applying some of these concepts to their own program or supervising others training for upcoming events.
