What does Risk Increase mean?

TritonWear will calculate if your risk of injury is increasing based on your current training and load monitoring trends

In sports, some injuries are accidents or unavoidable, but some can be avoided easily by monitoring your training load. Our Readiness tool will calculate your training load over the last 28 days and use the established sports science to let you know if you are overtraining or undertraining.

Even if you are in the Safe Zone of training you will always have some injury risk. However if you get closer to overtraining or undertraining your injury risk will rise. If you are fully in the overtraining or undertraining zones then your injury risk will rise even further. This will calculate automatically. As this will only tell you if your risk is increased or not, it should be used in combination with your Status to know what you are doing wrong and plan to correct it. You can see some example states below:

The levels of Risk Increase are:

-  (Hyphen/Dash): You will see this when you are training in the Safe Zone. This means you are training in a good and healthy way with no extra risk of injury.

Minimal: You are training slightly outside the Safe Zone. Not a big worry at this point but try to make sure you are trending in the right direction.

Increased: You are outside of the Safe Zone and have an injury risk that should not be ignored. Pay attention to the Recommendations and Readiness to Train Graph for advice on how to correct this.

Elevated: You are well outside of the Safe Zone and are putting yourself at risk of injury if you are not careful. Your training is ramping up or tapering down too drastically. See if you are undertraining or overtraining to make the necessary corrections to your training plan.

High: According to established sports science, you are putting yourself at a high risk of injury due to over or undertraining. Do everything you can to correct this to make sure you can stay healthy and keep training.
