One of the most challenging aspects to help an athlete improve his/her performance is to know his/her physical condition. For that purpose, technological advances allow us to get to know exactly what the player does during the training and competition process. These advances help us recognise the individual physical demands required to the player. Interpreting this information will help the whole technical team to improve the collective training process as well as the individual one, this will have an impact on a physical and tactical performance improvement and on a reduction on injury probability and/or overtraining.
Thanks to Electronic Performance & Tracking Systems (EPTS), Barcelona FC, one of the pioneer’s club on technological advances, has been improving and optimising its training process for a very long time. Getting to know its working methodology through EPTS will allow to show the participants the importance of learning and understanding the theoretical basis that involve these devices.
