Capello and England wise up to heart rate training
The Daily Mirror recently published a story explaining that the England national football team were following in the footsteps of Premier League clubs by incorporating technology into their training programme.
England’s performances at World Cup in the summer were widely criticised and a number of key players have also been dogged by ongoing fitness problems.
Fabio Capello, the England manager, was keen to find out what went wrong and decided to use an advanced service provided by STATsports. Built around GPS and heart rate technology, the service is used by leading clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea as well as the England rugby team.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror, the national team doctor Ian Beasley explained that coaches were now able to monitor a players’ heart rate, distance travelled and speed from the side of the pitch.
He said that this information helped them monitor whether a player was at risk of becoming fatigued which increases the risk of injury and impairs performance. Coaching staff are then able to adjust the intensity of training accordingly.
Improved awareness of your fitness levels is just one advantage of heart rate training. Using a heart rate monitor can optimise your performance is training and competition.
fitnessASSIST offer an extensive range of heart rate monitors from established brands including Timex and Oregon Scientific. All of our monitors provide accurate heart rate readings enabling individuals to monitor their intensity level and to train within their set heart training zones.
We also offer a wide extensive range of speed and distance monitors including the new Timex GPS Global Trainer. This device is regarded as the ultimate training tool and allows heart rate, speed, distance and altitude to be accurately measured.
Heart rate training is a must for anybody who is serious about their sport.
