Calculate your Training Load

As we have a strong focus on injury prevention when coaching, we keep an eye on our athletes' training load.

If you use Strava and have at least 8 weeks of training data in your account, you can take a look at your recent loading levels by using our loading calculator.


Overloading (overtraining) can lead to an increased chance of injury, as well as having a negative impact on your training gains. Overtraining is not just a case of doing too much that day, but potentially a cumulative effect of your training history.

Undertraining can indicate you're not training to your full potential, and not making the training gains you could experience. Undertraining can also lead to training spikes, which increase your risk of injury.
