Quantifying workloads in resistance training: a brief review


Greg Haff

The ability to quantify training loads and volumes is of particular importance when working with periodised training plans. The ability to plan and monitor resistance training loads allows the strength and conditioning professional the ability to modulate training stressors and better manage fatigue which ultimately leads to a greater potential that performance is optimised. In order to better understand the methods available for monitoring resistance training variables, the present review is designed to explore the various methods for quantifying training volumes and intensities used in the design and monitoring of resistance training programmes.
