Choosing how load averages

The load monitoring graph, found on the Load Monitoring page of TritonWear Insights, can be modified to display data on a week-to-week or day-to-day scale.

To choose how load averages:

  • Go to Profile & Preferences > Team
  • Click on the Training Load Method drop down menu and select your preferred method
  • Hit Save

What is the difference between Training Load Methods?

Calendar Week | ACWR Weekly average

  • The load monitoring graph will display load per week (training completed from Monday morning to Sunday evening).
  • Each bar will represent a single week.
  • The green optimal training zone is calculated according to the four-week average.
  • This method is probably the simplest, but Readiness to Train feedback is not complete until the end of each week.
CalendarWeek

Rolling Weeks | ACWR Rolling average

  • The load monitoring graph will display a bar for every day.
  • Each bar is calculated based on average load from the training done on that day and the previous 6 days (7 days in total).
  • The green optimal training zone is calculated according to the 28-day average.
  • With this method, Readiness to Train feedback is complete on a daily basis.

Rolling Weeks | ACWR EWMA

  • Similar to Rolling Weeks | ACWR Rolling Average, the load monitoring graph will display a bar for every day.
  • Rather than averaging with a rolling/moving average, averages with this method are based on the exponentially weighted moving average (EWMA) of load, which takes the most recent load more heavily into account, so it is more sensitive to day-to-day changes in workload.
  • The bar is calculated based on EWMA of load with a 7-day time constant.
  • The green optimal training zone is calculated based on EWMA of load with a 28-day time constant.
  • This method is a bit trickier to calculate (that's okay, we do it for you), but Readiness to Train feedback is complete on a daily basis and responds more quickly as loading ramps up and down.
