Elevating Your Performance with Chronic Training Load at Elite Tri Coaching

chronic training load

What is Chronic Training Load?

Chronic Training Load, often referred to as 'fitness', is a measure of an athlete's training volume over a prolonged period, typically the last six weeks to several months. It provides a comprehensive picture of an athlete's accumulated fatigue and overall fitness level. Understanding CTL is key to planning effective training schedules and ensuring athletes are neither under nor overtrained.

The Role of CTL in Elite Tri Coaching’s Training Plans

At Elite Tri Coaching, CTL is a fundamental component of our bespoke performance coaching programmes. Our experienced and qualified coaches utilise the latest in coaching techniques, training platforms, physiology, biomechanics, and psychology to create personalised training plans that take into account each athlete's CTL.

Our coaching packages, available for individual disciplines such as cycling, running, and swimming, as well as multi-discipline packages for triathlon and duathlon, are meticulously planned and monitored through Training Peaks. This platform allows us to track an athlete's CTL and adjust their training plan accordingly.

Elite Tri Coaching’s Approach to CTL

At Elite Tri Coaching, we believe in a holistic approach to athlete development. Beyond physical fitness, we place great emphasis on mental toughness, nutrition, and overall well-being. This philosophy extends to our management of CTL.

Our coaches work closely with athletes to understand their current fitness levels, training history, and future goals. This information is used to set an appropriate CTL, which serves as a guide for the athlete's training volume. Regular benchmark fitness testing, feedback on key sessions, and data uploads allow us to monitor changes in CTL and adjust training plans as necessary.
