    This package includes the following:
    • Monitoring Training and Performance in Athletes book
    • Online study guide
    • Online continuing education exam
    The use of performance monitoring systems in athletic training has grown due to technological advances. Practitioners who work with athletes from high school to elite levels in a range of sports use these systems to observe athlete data, including exercise intensity, athletic fitness, and body responses. Monitoring Training and Performance in Athletes is a compilation of evidence-based guidelines and best practices for athlete monitoring. You’ll learn how to implement monitoring systems and collect, analyze, and interpret data that result in training adjustments to optimize performance.

    Author Mike McGuigan, an award-winning sport scientist, blends research-based concepts with practical application strategies for monitoring training and performance in athletes. You’ll learn to monitor body stress, biochemical markers, and hormonal responses; find out about reliability of modern methods, such as wearable technology and questionnaires; and understand how to interpret data to modify training programs in real time. You’ll find guidelines, approaches, and solutions for challenges in athlete monitoring for individual and team sports, as well as suggestions for integrating monitoring with coaching.

    Real-world examples assist with understanding the cutting-edge, evidence-based research on athlete monitoring. Full-color illustrations and photographs provide a visual interpretation of the information presented. An accompanying study guide helps solidify learning from each chapter.

    Monitoring Training and Performance in Athletes is an invaluable guide in managing monitoring systems and adjusting training programs based on the data to help athletes and teams achieve peak performance.

    Once you complete the course and pass the exam, you can print a certificate for continuing education credits.
