This is part 2 of the chat with Shane Malone and Shane Mangan. You can find part 1 here. In this episode we delve a little deeper into training load monitoring and the intricacies around using GPS and other methods. Shane Mangan also speaks on Elo predictive modelling which is a really interesting chat and links nicely with a previous episode of the podcast with Sam Robertson. We also replicate a discussion I had with Aaron Coutts around the positives and negatives of the acute:chronic ratio.
