Silent contributors to injury - illness - performance, 18-19 March 2016 : Session 1 - Planning periodisation : Monitoring to prevent under performance / Michael Kellman.
Available for Clearinghouse for Sport member groups B, C, D & E only. Presenter : Prof. Dr. Michael Kellmann is Head of Unit of Sport Psychology at the Faculty of Sport Science at Ruhr-University Bochum (Germany). Prior to his current role, he was Senior Lecturer holding a joint appointment with the Schools of Human Movement Studies and Psychology at the University of Queensland (Australia). Michael served six years on the Executive Board of the German Association of Sport Psychology and is currently on the editorial board of The Sport Psychologist and the Deutsche Zeitschrift für Sportmedizin. Michael’s current research activities include overtraining prevention and recovery enhancement, sport psychological diagnostics and intervention, coach behaviour during competition and practice, as well as personality and performance competence of coaches in sports. Michael’s work has appeared in several publications. He is co-author of Recovery-Stress Questionnaire for Athletes: User Manual and edited the book Enhancing Recovery: Preventing Underperformance in Athletes both published by Human Kinetics (USA). This Symposium was jointly presented by Sports Medicine Australia ACT and the Australian Institute of Sport. Sub themes for the conference include: Planning Periodisation – Training errors, planning for performance, monitoring injury/illness/performance, planning for the gaps and travel ; Pathology Specific – Muscle, tendon, pain, mental health, gender ; Medical – Iron, Viral, respiratory, infectious diseases, vitamins, probiotic, immunology, genetic development ; Physical – sleep, body composition, energy availability, making weight, gender. Abstract : A main objective of sports scientists and elite coaches is the enhancement of athletic performance. Coaches and researchers suggested that enhanced recovery was seen as allowing athletes to train more and thus improve overall fitness (aerobic, strength and power) and technique and efficiency and simultaneously reduce the risk of experiencing overtraining. Although most coaches recognise that recovery is crucial within the sport setting, they often have limited knowledge of what recovery modalities and monitoring tools are available. Monitoring instruments are important to assess the individual need for recovery. The Recovery-Stress-Questionnaire for Athletes (Kellmann & Kallus, 2001, 2016) is an instrument that systematically assesses the recovery-stress state of an athlete. The recovery-stress state indicates the extent to which an individual is physically and/or mentally stressed, and whether or not the person is capable of using individual strategies for recovery, and also assesses which strategies are used. The Recovery-Stress-Questionnaire has been successfully used showing the relationship between training load in soccer (Brink et al., 2013), basketball (di Fronso et al., 2013; Nunes et al., 2014), cycling (Filho et al., 2013;), tennis (Filaire et al., 2013), triathlon (Barnett et al., 2012), kayaking (Garatachea at al., 2011), judo (Morales et al., 2014), ultra-marathon (Nicolas et al., 2011), rugby (King et al., 2010), volleyball (Freitas, et al., 2014) and other sports such as ballroom dancing (Liiv et al., 2013). In addition, studies suggest that the RESTQ-Sport is a sensitive instrument to predict injuries in sport (Laux et al., 2015; Shirr & Halle, 2011). This presentation will give an overview of recovery, monitoring instruments, current developments of recovery and overtraining research and its application.
