Performance Engineering: A Legal Approach for the Elite Athlete

Training for elite sport performance requires a substantial investment of time and effort on the part of both the athlete and the support staff. Importantly, training to excess can result in illness or injury. Moreover, the relationship between training and performance is not easy to deduce. Performance Engineering represents a novel way of addressing these issues using mathematical systems that model the specific relationship between training, adaptation, performance capacity and sport execution. The system is easily applied to most sports using computer software, and has been successfully used by Dr. Skiba to develop precise training programs and race strategies for world champion and world record holding athletes.
