In this video, we'll discuss how invisible monitoring can be used in sports science. These methods use the sports science data we already collect on athletes, predominantly training load data, so that separate physical testing is not required. Here we discuss the sports science research demonstrating this approach to load monitoring and how sports practitioners could apply this in professional team sports.
