The Pre-Flight Checklist: Monitoring Fatigue

The Pre-Flight Checklist: Monitoring Fatigue

“A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.” Albert Einstein   Stress was originally coined by Hans Selye in 1956, describing the general adaptation syndrome where the initial response, the alarm stage, is negative, with the physiological state of the organism decreasing following the imposition of stress shown in the image below. A more comprehensive model of the physiological responses to training stimuli is the fitness-fatigue theory. Proposed in 1982 by Banister, the fitness-fatigue model argues that different training stresses result in different physiological responses, particularly using an individual’s baseline of training to better quantify fitness (a positive adaptation) versus fatigue (a negative adaptation). How it works: The framework takes your fitness level and subtracts your fatigue to estimate performance. The fluctuations in your daily performance show your fatigue. See this study published in the Strength and Conditioning Journal for more on the fitness-fatigue model. When quantifying fatigue, it’s importance to look at two different types of data. The first is what you did to recover. UpRight Movement wants to know your mindset, how you are breathing, how you slept, what you ate, how you managed stress, and if you used secondary recovery tools (e.g., cold plunge, massage, etc.). Next we want to measure your readiness by looking at: Outcome-Based Measurements (e.g., CNS (Central Nervous System) Finger Tap Test) Physiological-Based Measurements (e.g., HRV (Heart Rate Variability), Lab Analysis etc.) Subjective-Based Measurements (e.g., Fatigue, Daily Readiness Monitor, Daily Regeneration Monitor, Daily Readiness Index) UpRight Movement is a Force Multiplier supporting your results safely and efficiently through its precision approach, which respects the several essential...
