Performance monitoring

Objectives of the Control unit of performance:

  • Biomedical Control of the training individualized depending on each sport using parameters like CPK, Urea, and Hemoglobin subjective perceptions of the burdens of training. All these data will be supplemented with the information given by the test of performance.
  • Evaluation of sports performance through various muscular power test, jumps, determination of muscle state via tensiomiografía, tests specific to each sport and field test.
  • Post-ejercicio recovery. One of the keys to improving the performance of our athletes is the design of a protocol of individualized post-ejercicio recovery.
  • Preparation and tuning for competition (Tapering and Peaking). There is a refinement and fine tuning for competition in coordination with the coaches. for this must be determined and adapt the burdens of training as well as the frequency of meetings in a customised fashion through the data obtained by any of the tests described above (lactatos, energy efficiency, etc.).
