A sauna session can have the same effect on the body as an additional training session, as similar physiological reactions are induced. Therefore, a regenerative sauna session is best done before a rest day and not before a competition.

Training monitoring

One of the easiest methods is to indicate the intensity after each training session using the modified Forster scale. This scale goes from 0 to 10 and gives you the possibility to determine your subjective load using the session RPE "ratings of perceived exertion".

Training status

Your current training status will always be best in the optimal range of 0.8 and 1.3. If you stay in this range, we can guarantee that you will be training in a healthy manner that helps prevent the onset of overuse symptoms.

Session RPE

The session-RPE (rating of perceived exertion) gives you the possibility to reflect your subjective feeling of stress after each session. This evaluation should be given without much thinking and directly after the session.

Training form

Your chronological average workload (CWL) describes your fitness. If you subtract your acute workload (AWL) from your fitness (CWL), you get the measure for your form (CWL-AWL). If you are currently training more than your body is prepared to perform, your fatigue increases and your current form decreases. If you recover by lowering your current load, your form will increase again.
