Swimming World TV’s Brent Rutemiller caught up with Triton Wear’sTristan Lehari at the ASCA World Clinic in Anaheim, California to discuss Triton Wear‘s injury prevention graph that coaches can use to make sure their athletes are not over training.

Lehari explains how they have used sport scientists (1:03) to look into what can cause injuries from over training and using that sports science to help coaches in a season.

Lehari takes us through the graph (1:50) and what each of the different colored lines means. The graph monitors an athlete’s load over the course of the season. The graph can tell an athlete if they are changing their training load too quickly they can put themselves at a higher risk of injury.

The different colored lines on the bar graph indicate if an athlete is overtraining or not. Lehari explains in depth (2:40) on the graph why certain lines are red (over training), green (ideal training) or orange (under training). Both red lines and orange lines can lead to higher risk of injury.

The graph also has a “safe zone” (4:30) which determines where the capacity of training is. The graph can also be extended to the next season (6:20) and shows that swimmers should not rush back into training too quickly.

It can be used as a “personal sports scientist” (7:03) for teams that might not be able to afford one or have the time to go in depth with it. Lehari explains that it is constantly being updated with new information (7:20) and it can be available for teams of all sizes.

Lehari also showed off some of Triton Wear‘s other products (7:32) including the Triton unit, which sits at the back of the swimmer’s goggles.
