Kyle D. Peterson and Gabriela T. Quiggle from The University of Iowa Olympic Strength & Conditioning department have recently published an article in which they have characterized the relationship between relative versus absolute internal and external loads in collegiate basketball players throughout the course of a season. Apart from analysis based on triaxial accelerometers, players were tensiomyographically assessed on a weekly basis. The study revealed that tensiomyography utilized as a tool to monitor internal loads may be more suitable for detecting fatigue from relative external load changes versus an absolute load attained.
