Predicting and monitoring functional overreaching

In this interesting article of Twan ten Haaf (VU), the researches tested whether they could distinguish athletes that are functional overreached from athletes that are just tired from a training using physiological and psychological parameters. They conclude that only two simple visual analogue scales are required to monitor and identify athletes to become functional overreached. Therefore the authors encourage coaches to not only monitor fatigue but also the readiness to train.
