Athlete Monitoring-How To Use Session RPE [pt 1]

How Do You Incorporate Athlete Monitoring In Your Program Design?

Does athlete monitoring have to be expensive?


In this episode I have a great discussion with Coach Nate Brookreson and how he uses Session RPE in his program design with the teams he gets to work with at NC State.

We talk about the following:
  • What do you mean by the phrase 'athlete monitoring'?
  • Does 'athlete monitoring' mean you have to use expensive hi-tech equipment?
  • The difference between 'testing' and 'monitoring'
  • What do you mean by the 'dose-response' method?
  • How reliable is the RPE Method?
  • How do you use RPE in your own program?
  • How do you calculate Session RPE?
Nate Brookreson was named Director of Strength & Conditioning for Olympic Sports at NC State in June of 2015.  His primary training duties are with women’s basketball, swimming and diving and men and women’s golf, while supervising the implementation of training for over 500 student-athletes.
