Training log and periodization
For a computer tool to be valuable it should be able to display information correctly and accurately. Optimax can create six reports that clearly illustrate the different aspects of your training. With these reports you will know more about your training and therefore be able to plan better, and make more precise adjustments to your training schedule.
Monthly Training Details
The monthly training details report is designed to show the details of training for a given month. It can show the amount of training performed in each zone, in each activity and also in each type.
Meso-cycle Training Details
This report is designed to show the details of training for a given cycle in a year. It can show the amount of training performed in each zone, in each activity or in each type. This report uses periodization (view screen shots) to determine different meso-cycles.
Training Details for a Specific time Period
Just like the Monthly Training Details report and Meso-cycle Training Details report, this is designed to show the details of training performed in each zone, in each activity or in each type. The difference is that it does so for the specific time period that you choose.
Training Details According to Periodization
This report is used to show the training that has been done over an entire year. It uses periodization (view screen shots) to calculate the training that has been done for each period, phase, meso-cycle, and week. It is a powerful tool that gives you a very precise overview of your training year.
It is useful for building future training plans and it is very beneficial because it shows how the volume of training has been distributed during the year. The report is the same format as a yearly training program. Therefore, you can use it to generate an annual training program based on the training you have done throughout the year. If you modify the contents of the report according to your goals and other requirements, you will have the training program for your next training year. This report can be used as the basis for building your new training program.
Table of Distance Covered for each Activity
This report shows the amount of time and the distance covered for each activity on the training activity list. The beauty of this report is that it will extrapolate information if any is missing. If you have not entered the information when recording your training session, the software will use all the training sessions where you have recorded both time and distance to calculate your average speed. After doing so, it will fill in the gaps in wherever you have not recorded both time and distance. The results are approximations of the total distance and total time spent on each training activity throughout your training year. The accuracy of this calculation depends on the amount of information the software has to work with; the more information you have entered, the more accurate the extrapolation.
Weight, sleep and heart rate pattern
This report shows variations in several important health signs. It shows fluctuation of your body weight, sleep pattern and your resting heart rate.
