THIRD DIMENSION OF LOAD or Why is it easy to run?

TE-TA CREATIVITY 2/4 | Third Dimension of Load

Some children and adults can hardly wait for the end of the match, and when it happens, they feel relief, especially in the event of a win.

Some children and adults can hardly wait for the start of the game, and when it finishes, they are a bit sad because they would like to play more.

WHY?

What does not break you, makes you stronger.

Whatever breaks you it has broken you.

 

If we coach a senior team in which players are motivated, we almost never come to a conflict at the practices in which the dominant component is physical preparation (workout in a gym or practising only fitness skills). Nearly all conflicts are raised at tactical practices or during matches.

Why is this so, if fitness training is physically the most demanding?

By measuring the run (kilo)meters, we easily conclude that fitness training or at least some of its parts is more difficult than the match.

Depending on the position in the team, it is common today that seniors on a single match run between 3000 and 5000 meters. Those in the teams who have two practice sessions a day, often run that much before noon, and in the afternoon they practice again.

Everyone knows how difficult it is to play important matches every two days. On large seniors competitions like the Olympics, many teams are often the best in the first week of the competition, and in the second half, they are drastically bad. Or vice versa. And during the competition, there is a lot of talk about how the coach rested his players and about the influence of the rest to the final result.

If we know that virtually no player plays more than 60 minutes every 2 days, it is very easy to calculate that the physical strains of the competition are less than of the practices that the same players went through in preparation for the competition.

This is because tiredness is not a product of physical effort only. Instead, it is a sum or a multiplicity of physical effort, high expectations, trembling before the match and stress during it, an emotional passage of comments after win or defeat, .etc.

If professional players, people who are prepared for the greatest effort, are so much influenced by the emotional and mental components of sports, what are the effects of practices, coaches and matches on children?

With a traditional view of the practice process for children and adults, a conclusion has been drawn that the workload of a particular practice depends on two dimensions:

Load volume

Load intensity

and is displayed by the surface below the line indicating their relationship:

If the surface below the curve is large, the load is large and vice versa: if the surface is small, the load is lower.

Such a view is a logical consequence of the partial viewing of athletes exclusively from the angle of physical preparation. He is seen as a whole that is made up of different parts in which the physical load is one of the constituents on which we act, and we are just watching it.

The logical consequence of this view is planning and programming in which high-intensity practices are exchanged, with less intense recovery.

Yes, she cries when she is sad and angry. Sometimes she just cries her eyes out at a practice. We are alone in a 700 square-meter hall. We close all doors. Nobody goes in. She has to meet 10 different indicators, she has to defeat herself, the world champion.

The condition in that hall is such that you should not fire a match - everything would go sky-high. Everything is so full of emotion and strength. When a success happens, it is followed by unlimited happiness, when a fail occurs, there comes unlimited sadness, sorrow, anger and tears.

This is an everyday life of Blanka Vlašić.

In handball and all other sports where creativity and psychomotor speed are important, such a view is not complete.
