Planning for future performance: implications for long term training

Can J Appl Sport Sci. 1980 Sep;5(3):170-6.


The contribution of cardio-respiratory endurance and strength to elite performance in swimming has been quantitated in a unit of training termed the Training Impulse (TRIMP). The Training Impulse has been used to construct a model for predicting performance in swimming based upon the degree of balance between fitness and fatigue that training engenders.
