With the implementation of this principle and the resulting optimal stress and recovery ratio, corresponding training progress can be demonstrably achieved. Healthy, sustainable, efficient and reproducible. Coordinated training activities based on biological data, objectives and opportunities.
The physiology of humans is essentially the same for everyone. The difference between all training activities is determined by the initial situation and the specific requirements of the objective. The training is to be seen as a “means for the purpose” in order to provoke the desired and necessary changes and adjustments in the body.
Helping, to find the most effective and efficient way, is the task.
Are there any questions about why? Here is the answer.
Performance diagnostics is a necessity to know where to start.
All activities for the development of physical performance are derived from this and planned according to biological requirements and information.
It also serves to check the activities derived from this (training planning and implementation) for their effectiveness. Nothing is left to chance.
The determined data from the performance diagnostics form the basis for efficient training optimization and planning, depending on the current status and the available possibilities.
Frequently repeated training sessions are efficiently tailored to the overall scope in order to develop an optimal strain and recovery ratio.
Biologically effective training significantly influences regeneration, the immune system and stress tolerance.
This includes appropriate documentation and a periodic review (performance diagnostics) of the training taken for their development.
I had to give up my path in competitive sports relatively early, due to training errors and the injuries that resulted. The question of WHY it all went that way, quickly became clear. Overloads in everyday training due to incorrect training, coupled with a lack of knowledge of the biological context, very often result in injuries or even end the career. Since then, I have been pursuing the vision of helping people to achieve better performance in a healthy and above all sustainable manner.
Since 1996, via the stations at the Olympic Center in Obertauern (1996 – 2000), the Lower Austria Performance Center (Willi Dungl 2000 – 2002) and, most recently, the establishment of the RED BULL diagnostics and training center in Thalgau “DTC” (2003 – 2019), I’m accompanied by the renowned sports doctor Dr. Bernd Pansold as mentor, boss and friend.
With around 700 diagnoses per year in the past few years in over 100 disciplines in various sports with numerous world and European champions and medalists at the Olympic Games, there is almost no sport in which the physical performance in relation to the top has not been analyzed.
From Formula 1 (Vettel, Verstappen, Buemi…) to beach volleyball (Berger, Doppler, Gartmayer…), wind- kitesurf (Sieber, Frey, Pulido…), rowing (Sieber´s, Valčiukaitė…), bike (Stauder, Grosic…), triathlon, Golf (Schwab…) to all winter sports disciplines, such as alpine skiing (Pinturault, Rahlves…) to Nordic disciplines (Goldberger, Landertinger…) und much more. And also team sports like ice hockey (Bobrovsky, EC RB) handball and soccer.
This forms the basis of the “know-how” of the interplay of performance diagnostics and the measures to be derived from it for systematic planning in relation to the requirement profile and the competitive structure of the respective sport.
The scientific consideration of the principle “cause-effect” is the basis of my actions, with the aim to lead athletes healthy and efficient to their maximum possible performance.
Therefore: FOLLOW BIOLOGICAL RULES. Determining the status quo and knowing the performance or current resilience is a basic prerequisite for expressing relevant information about training. The question of WHY should be answered as the most important question. Appropriate advice to understand the processes and relationships is therefore an essential part.
