Predicting Injuries Using Banister Model – The Addendum

A year ago I tried to use Banister model to predict injuries, but I recently realized I made an error implementing link function. So, I decided to do one more try and correct the problem.

In the video below I am using three training load metrics (RPE Load, Odometer and High Speed Distance) to predict soft tissue injuries for one athlete. I have covered a lot of topics regarding modelling in general, Banister model and its pro’s and con’s, as well as potential solutions. Also, I will talk more about using heuristics, rather than analysis in helping decision making.
