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. In his PhD-project, Torstein Dalen-Lorentsen found that it’s not possible to assess risk of health problems based on training load, and that the studies claiming this has substantial methodological weaknesses.
