The Xert Adaptive Training Advisor is a smart training recommendation engine that factors in many variables obtained from analysis of your data. Here are some of the variables that are accounted for in the advice provided:

  • Current Training Loads by each system – Low, High, Peak
  • Current Recovery Loads by each system – Low, High, Peak
  • Current Form by each system – Low, High, Peak
  • Overall Training Status
  • Your current Fitness Signature, established via MPA Analysis and Fitness Signature extraction, including Threshold Power
  • Your freshness – Very Tired to Very Fresh
  • The rate at which each Training Load is increasing / decreasing
  • Your selected Program Type, which includes:
  • The number of activities you performed recently, including:
    • The average duration for your activities
    • The XSS you accumulated for each activity

With this information, the training advisor then estimates:

  • The deficit / surplus of training you have at the moment
  • The amount of hours you will need to maintain to sustain the improvement rate you have selected
  • The target Focus you should have for your next workout, based on the phase  and target event date
  • The recommended Focus based on your target Focus and freshness
  • The workout XSS goal you should have for your workout
  • Whether you need a recovery week
  • The Difficulty you can handle in your training based on your current training loads and desired improvement rate

With all this information, each workout is scored based on how they best match your current training needs.  From here, the best workouts are chosen and presented as recommended workouts.  When you load the workout onto one of the Xert Workout Players, they are tuned to your capabilities and training level automatically, adjusting target intensities on-the-fly, ensuring you reach the right targets as you execute the workout.

When new activities are received, you update your Target Event Date,  update your Improvement Rate or just recover, the adaptive algorithm will readjust the recommendations, always ensuring you’re on the right track with your training.
