In this month's podcast Adam talks with Dr Tim Gabbett about injury prevention in sports. He discusses Dr Gabbett’s recent paper in the British Journal of Sports Medicine on the Acute to Chronic ratio for load as a guide to reduce the risk of preventable injury.
Adam and Tim discuss the role and importance of monitoring load and how best this can be achieved in both professional, amateur, and individual sports.
