Plan and monitor for success
In 2023, Athlete Analyzer introduced the "Performance Planning" feature, transforming how coaches across our various supported disciplines; Judo, BJJ, Taekwondo, Karate and Fencing, can plan their athletes’ future planning.
This feature allows for strategic planning, offering insights into how different training schedules impact fitness, fatigue, and performance levels at future dates. This is particularly crucial in tapering strategies, ensuring athletes are in peak form for their competitions. Performance planning is available in the calendar view. Discover in real time how added, changed or removed workouts will affect your future performance level.
TIP: Usually, coaches plan for keeping or increasing the intensity but lower the volume in the training. This means that the athletes have more time over than usual. Use this time wisely, plan for some extra video analysis and mental preparation. Fine tune technical and tactical preparations and mentally visualize success on the match day.
Beyond performance level, Athlete Analyzer recognizes the importance of sleep amount and quality in athletic success. For those using an iPhone or a Garmin or Polar watch, integrating your data, including sleep, with Athlete Analyzer is straightforward, providing valuable insights regarding the sleep patterns. Find out how to connect your devices here for Polar and here for Garmin.
Our updated weight analysis feature is another key tool, particularly for sports where weight categories are used. It allows for effective monitoring and management of weight trends, which is essential for optimal performance and health.
The 'Athlete Analyzer Kiosk' has become a popular tool for teams to monitor weight and wellness. Place the Kiosk near your scale and have your athletes register their weight and wellness in connection with their training. Learn how to activate your kiosk here.
Heart Rate Variability (HRV)
In 2023, we also added the capability to track and analyze Heart Rate Variability (HRV) for users with Polar or Garmin devices. HRV is an excellent indicator of an athlete's recovery status and readiness for peak performance. Explore the benefits of HRV tracking here.
