Workload variables considered in workload ratio modelling

Distance (m)Distance above 3 km/h
Session-RPE (arbitrary units)Athlete rating of perceived exertion×session duration
Player load (arbitrary units)Custom metric measuring the magnitude of rate of change of acceleration17
Distance-load (m2 min-1)Distance×mean speed
HSR (m)Distance above 24 km/h
MSR (m)Distance between 18 and 24 km/h
  • HSR, high speed running; MSR, moderate speed running.
