What to do with the Data8
ChicagoApr 23, 2020

Takeaway 1: Train in practice considering the demands of the game

  • In addition to cumulative loads, look at the intensities of specific drills. Are players trained for the demands of a game at any point during a practice session?
  • Use the same acceleration / deceleration zones and ratios in practice and games so that metrics are comparable.
  • Basketball-specific: Monitor the jump load in practice / warm-ups – how is it impacting the player’s cumulative loads in the subsequent game?

*While some drills are for educational purposes, others need to be at game speed. 

Takeaway 2: Conditioning should peak for the playoffs / postseason

  • Identify the different phases of the season and adjust your training accordingly to ensure that athletes are not peaking too early.
  • Build up a program that prepares your players for the specific demands of the playoffs (intensities and loads).

Takeaway 3: Use loads, intensities and different metrics to design training sessions

  • Train the energy systems that are used in the game. Tracking data will illuminate how the demands of the game differ for players. Conditioning programs can be designed accordingly.
  • Understanding how players move during the game (i.e., more distance or more stop/​starts) allows you to design drills to work on the specific muscular and tendon demands.
