You Can’t Measure What You Can’t See: The Efficacy of Visual Feedback by Glen Owen

It isn’t always a question of “what’s next?” but often a question of “what is happening right now?” Strength and conditioning coaches and athletes monitor training loads and intensity to show what training has been completed, and how subsequent training can be changed to affect performance. Similarly, some coaches use products like Heart Rate Variability to measure training ‘readiness’ and fatigue. Although these methods provide information an athlete can use between sessions, they do nothing in terms of providing feedback during training.
