About the course

Join Dr Tim Gabbett and Sports Physiotherapist Mick Hughes for a 2 hour discussion on Training Loads and Load Management. In this 2 hour Masterclass, Tim and Mick discuss the current literature on Training Loads and how best to get a higher level of performance out of your athletes and patients, and also reduce the risk of injury and subsequent injury. Learning objectives: 1. Understand Sackett’s hierarchy of evidence and the difference between empirical evidence and opinion 2. Understand how load, load-capacity, and health interact to impact performance 3. Understand how training load and physical qualities interact to impact injury risk 4. Understand how acute and chronic loads can be manipulated to progressively overload athletes 5. Understand how moderators influence the relationship between load and injury 6. Understand the different methods of calculating chronic load and the acute:chronic workload ratio, and the implications of each method 7. You can criticize 3 articles and use the knowledge in training programs 8. After watching the masterclass you’ll be asked to set up a training program. By applying the knowledge you gained during the masterclass you can use your own creativity by setting up a program. After doing this you’ll receive your certificate and points. Once you purchase the class, you can watch it as many times as you like, wherever and whenever you like (with an Internet connection). Improve your knowledge with Mick and Tim today!

Mick Hughes & Tim Gabbett

My name is Mick Hughes and I am a Physiotherapist many years experience working in private practice sports physiotherapy clinics.

During this time I have worked with elite junior sporting teams such as the NQ Cowboys U20s rugby league team and the Newcastle Jets National Youth League and Emerging Jets Academy soccer teams.

In addition to my physiotherapy degree, I have also completed a degree in exercise science and am halfway through completing a post-graduate masters in sports physiotherapy. As a result I have a unique skill-set that allows me to accurately diagnose a patient with an acute injury and rehabilitate them all the way back to high performance.

Clinically, I am happy to treat all patients, of all ages, with all musculo-skeletal complaints. I do however have a special interest in the diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention of sports injuries, in particular injuries sustained in the adolescent age group to the lumbar spine and the lower limb. For example:

– Acute knee injuries (eg. ACL, MCL, meniscus, patella dislocations)
– Overuse knee injuries (eg. PFJ pain),
– Stress-related injuries (eg. Stress fractures to lumbar spine and shin)
– Apophysitis injuries (eg. Sever’s and Osgood Schlatters)

In addition to this I have a very good understanding of injury prevention strategies, biomechanical analysis, load management education, and resistance training programming in this age group. Finally I also have a very good understanding of lower limb tendinopathy treatment and management of lower limb osteoarthritis in the adult populations.

Overall, I think my approach to physiotherapy is quite unique in that I combine my clinical assessment and diagnostic skills as a physiotherapist, and combine it with my skill-set in tailoring exercise programs to the patient’s injury for optimal short term and long term improvements in pain and function. As a result, I spend as little time possible using passive forms of treatment, and instead try to promote active treatment strategies to my patients for what I personally believe results in superior and sustained long term improvements in pain and function.

Dr. Tim Gabbett has 20 years experience working as an applied sport scientist with athletes and coaches from a wide range of sports. He holds a PhD in Human Physiology (2000) and has completed a second PhD in the Applied Science of Professional Football (2011) , with special reference to physical demands, injury prevention, and skill acquisition. Tim has worked with elite international athletes over several Commonwealth Games (2002 and 2006) and Olympic Games (2000, 2004, and 2008) cycles. He continues to work as a sport science and coaching consultant for several high performance teams around the world. Tim has published over 200 peer-reviewed articles and has presented at over 200 national and international conferences. He is committed to performing world-leading research that can be applied in the ‘real world’ to benefit high performance coaches and athletes.
