Episode 56 with Tim Gabbett [Load Management]

In this episode we were delighted to welcome Dr Tim Gabbett who consults across numerous elite sporting domains worldwide and talk about load management. He talks about what load actually is, how people respond to it and how it can be progressed safely. A great analogy of ‘beer tolerance’ is discussed, along with what the acute to chronic workload ratio is and how it can be calculated. The biggest application of this for clinicians is clearly how it should influence their history taking of injured atheltes/patients (asking about previous weeks load along with psyhosocial factors that may influence load capacity), and how they can advise their patients monitor their own load in a free and easy way (by multiplying their weekly intensity by volume and frequency). We also touched on the limitations of the “10% rule”
