Public defence of doctoral thesis | Training load and health problems in football – More complex than we first thought? | Torstein Dalen-Lorentsen, Norwegian School of Sport Sciences, December...
Sudden increase in training load has been linked to increased risk of injuries and illnesses (health problems). In the past years, researchers have claimed that easy-to-use calculations can precisely estimate how much training load can increase without increasing the risk of health problems.
