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.
If you train too little, you will fall into an undertraining status of 1.5.
What is behind the range of 1.5?
Quite simply, it hides the ratio of your chronological (CWL) and acute workload (AWL) and gives you a measure of your fatigue.
The individual training statuses are briefly explained below:
Undertraining < 0.8
Here the AWL/CWL ratio is a little too low. This means that you have trained less in the last 7 days than in the 3 weeks before and you can definitely increase your training. Stick with our ASSISTANT, it will give you suggestions that you can or should train next to get into the optimal range.
Optimum range 0.8 - 1.3
If you are in the optimal range, your ratio of load and recovery is well balanced! It means you are training healthily and are on a good way to reach your goal.
Short-term overtraining 1,3 - 1,5
The range of 1.3 - 1.5 indicates slight overtraining. This is not a problem as long as you give your body a more rest from now on. This will ensure that the ratio between load and recovery moves back into the optimal range. Make use of our ASSISTANT here as well - it shows you how many days of rest your body needs in order to get going again.
Overtraining > 1,5
You are in overtraining! Your body absolutely needs a recovery phase now, in order to still prevent injuries from occurring. To prevent this from happening again, stick to the ASSISTANT. It will always show you individual training suggestions and make sure that they are feasible for you!
