Prevention Through – Through – Training Program Design Training Program Design Physical Conditioning Physical Conditioning Nutrition/Hydration Nutrition/Hydration Warm-up and Cool-down Warm-up and Cool-down Stretching Stretching Monitoring of over-use signs and symptoms Monitoring of over-use signs and symptoms
Training Program Design Appropriate type of training stimulus Appropriate type of training stimulus Ample rest and recovery time Ample rest and recovery time Specific to your sport Specific to your sport Specific to improve your weaknesses and maximize your strengths. Specific to improve your weaknesses and maximize your strengths.
REST… is the most important part of your workout. Between workouts there must be ample time for recovery
Complete recovery time required following various types of training inducing HIGH fatigue Type of training Type of training Speed Speed Strength Strength Anaerobic lactate Anaerobic lactate Aerobic Power Aerobic Power Aerobic endurance Aerobic endurance Recovery time 24 hrs hrs 48 hrs hrs hrs N.B. Obviously, less recovery required when fatigue is not high Discussion required of these points! Modified from Platonov, 1988, via Marion (1995) & Balyi, NCI-Victoria
Physical Conditioning Strength – gluts, hamstring/quadricep ratio, ankle and calf, upper body Strength – gluts, hamstring/quadricep ratio, ankle and calf, upper body Neuromuscular coordination drills (ie SAQ drills) Neuromuscular coordination drills (ie SAQ drills) Good technique and execution Good technique and execution Balance and proprioception exercises Balance and proprioception exercises Plyometrics Plyometrics Flexibility – ankle, thoracic spine Flexibility – ankle, thoracic spine Aerobic/anaerobic conditioning Aerobic/anaerobic conditioning
Golden Rules... During any given training session, quality of exercise performance is the cornerstone of the training program. Think of the Means of skill performance, not the end product. Think of the Means of skill performance, not the end product.
Your body needs 8 to 10 cups of fluid during the day to stay hydrated Fluid Intake Guidelines Before event- drink 500 ml (2 cups) water During the event- drink 150 to 300 ml every minutes for events < 1 hour WATER is good for events > 1 hour a source of carbohydrates helps to delay fatigue. Choose a beverage with 4 - 8% carbohydrates (i.e. 4-8g carbohydrates/100 ml) After the event - consume enough fluid to replace all losses ml per kg of body weight lost

Warm-up/Cool-Down Warm-up Warm-up Should be Dynamic! Should be Dynamic! Cool-Down Cool-Down Means slowing down (not stopping completely), after exercise Means slowing down (not stopping completely), after exercise Continue to move around at a very low intensity for 5 to 10 minutes after a workout Continue to move around at a very low intensity for 5 to 10 minutes after a workout Finish with some stretching Finish with some stretching

All physiological training is intimately dependent on the concept of progressive overload.
Overtraining and Overreaching Is an advanced expression of athletic fatigue. It is characterized by a decline/stagnation in performance, and is accompanied by a set of physiological, psychological and biochemical signs and symptoms.

Training load SupercompensationNormal functioning level of the body Recovery of tissues and fuels after training session Fatigue, decrease in normal functioning level Adapted from NCCP Task #6 readings Perfect Too soon Too late Next workout? Level of Physi cal prepa redne ss/fu els Ref. Page 30
Staging of Tendinitis/Overuse Syndrome/Under-recovery SYMPTOMS n Stage I: n Pain only after activity. n Does not interfere with performance. n Often generalized tenderness. n Disappears before next exercise session. n Stage II: n Minimal pain with activity. n Does not interfere with intensity or distance. n Usually localized tenderness. TREATMENT n Modification of activity. Assessment of training pattern. Possibly NSAIDs Modification of activity. Physical therapy; NSAIDs; consider orthotics. Reid, 1992
Staging of Tendinitis/Overuse Syndrome/Under-recovery SYMPTOMS n Stage III: n Pain interferes with activity. n Usually disappears between sessions. n Definite local tenderness. n Stage IV: n Pain does not disappear between activity sessions. n Seriously interferes with intensity of training. n Significant local signs of pain, tenderness, creptitus, swelling. TREATMENT n Significant modification of activity. Assess training schedule. Physical therapy; NSAIDs; consider orthotics. Usually need to temporarily discontinue aggravating motion. Design alternate program. May require splinting. Physical therapy and NSAIDs. Reid, 1992
Staging of Tendinitis/Overuse Syndrome/Under-recovery SYMPTOMS n Stage V: n Pain interferes with sport and activities of daily living. n Symptoms often chronic or recurrent. n Signs of tissue changes and altered associated muscle function. TREATMENT n Prolonged rest from activity. NSAIDs plus other medical therapies. Consider splint or cast. Physical therapy. May require surgery. Reid, 1992
Symptoms of Overtraining Apathy (no emotion) Apathy (no emotion) Lethargy (tired all the time) Lethargy (tired all the time) Depression Depression Decreased self-esteem Decreased self-esteem Emotional instability Emotional instability Impaired performance Impaired performance Restlessness Restlessness Irritability Irritability Disturbed sleep Disturbed sleep Weight loss Weight loss Loss of appetite Loss of appetite Increased resting heart rate Increased resting heart rate Increased vulnerability to injuries Increased vulnerability to injuries Muscle pain/soreness Muscle pain/soreness
Preventing Over-training Set realistic and flexible training/game goals Set realistic and flexible training/game goals Physical conditioning Physical conditioning Practice quality not quantity Practice quality not quantity Keep program flexible Keep program flexible Allow for rest and recovery Allow for rest and recovery Relieve Stress Relieve Stress Nutrition and hydration Nutrition and hydration Recovery techniques (Active Rest, Relaxation, Massage, Hot/Cold etc) Recovery techniques (Active Rest, Relaxation, Massage, Hot/Cold etc)

Compression Minimize swelling with a tensor Minimize swelling with a tensor Dont wear at night Dont wear at night
Elevate Keep the ankle at or above waist level at all times when the patient is not active Keep the ankle at or above waist level at all times when the patient is not active Should be continued until the swelling has resolved Should be continued until the swelling has resolved
Refer Refer for medical advice for injuries requiring additional treatment Receive permission to return to sport from a medical advisor Ensure joint is well supported on return to sport (ie. Brace or tape)
Seek Treatment: The earlier the better !! Sport Physiotherapy: Sport Physiotherapy: - Movement patterns - Alignment - Asymmetries/imbalances - Resting and active muscle tone - Flexibility and joint range of motion
