In recent years, and with the advancement of wearable sensor technologies in the field of external monitoring training loads, clubs and sports scientists have become interested in achieving an appropriate level of training load indices for athletes in various team sports to minimize load-induced injuries. Players accumulate fatigue as the season progresses, and when the training load/matches increase in conjunction with insufficient recovery, players may enter a non-functional overreaching state (NFOR) and overreaching training syndrome (OTS) marked by decrements in performance. This challenge is particularly important for sports clubs in managing the fatigue and recovery of athletes with the prevention of NFOR, OTS, and possible injuries, which can increase the team success rate and reduce team costs
There is no study on training loads in wrestling, one of the oldest Olympic sports branches. The aim of this project is to investigate the training load management in wrestlers and to reveal the first unique studies in the world.
We aim to examine the use of GPS and training load management.
