Load transfer and training load management in the lower limb
The ‘Mastering Load’ lecture is a consolidation of knowledge and theory related to the management of athletic injury taking into account the cellular, local tissue, global movement and systemic levels. We analyse the tissues and their mechanotransductive properties, the local ‘issues with tissues’ and joints, the global movement characteristics of the pelvis and lower limb, and the impact of extrinsic variables such as training load upon injury risk. Modalities used to monitor performance and training periodisation are presented.
