FC Bayern Basketball Provides Insights Into Load Management
The COVID pandemic has made stress management even more challenging. In our new case video, FC Bayern Basketball shares insights on how tracking data helps protect players from overload.
Packed game schedules and lots of travel pose challenges to load management in top-level basketball. The COVID pandemic has further escalated these with unpredictable match postponements.
In the current week, for example, FC Bayern Basketball starts a series of five consecutive away games. The journey of Andrea Trinchieri’s team first goes to Istanbul, where two games will take place, then on to Madrid and finally to Giessen. Within one week.
Little time for training and recovery requires precise load control
In order to responsibly control the players’ training and match load, FC Bayern introduced KINEXON PERFORM. This allows all relevant load values to be collected easily and centrally, and training and match workloads to be adjusted as a result.
Luka Svilar is the current Head of Physical Performance at FC Bayern. His strategy:
“During the season, we base our work on KINEXON PERFORM LPS. In the pre-season, when we are away for a longer period of time, we use KINEXON PERFORM IMU to collect different variables. In this way, we combine both systems.”
