About QTESTS

The purpose of Qtests is the monitoring of the training load, using the scale (Foster), the Hooper's Index (stress, fatigue, and sleep quality), and the Profile Of Mood States test Rate of Perceived Exertion (, Foster) ccurate monitoring of the training load can help coaches improve the preparation of their athletes for competition. method for quantifying training loads from a variety of different training modalities into one simple arbitrary number has been developed (Foster et al. 1996; Foster 1998; Foster et al. 2001). This method of monitoring training load requires each athlete to provide an for each exercise session (see Table 1in the related links below) along with a measure of training time (Foster et al. 2001). To calculate a measure of session intensity, athletes are asked within 30minutes of finishing their workout a simple question such as ‘How was your workout?’ single number representing the magnitude of training load for each session is then calculated by the multiplication of training intensity () by the training session duration (minutes). Hooper's Index Hooper's Index is a method based on selfanalysis questionnaires involving the wellbeing ratings relative to fatigue, stress level, delayed onset muscle soreness (), and sleep quality/disorders [3]. The Hooper's Index is the summation of these 4 ratings. In accordance with Hooper et al. [3], subjective ratings using scales of 17 from “very very loworgood” (point 1) to “very very highorbad” (point 7) have been suggested as one of the most costeffective strategy for early detection of overtraining syndrome. Since its release in 1971, the Profile Of Mood State assessment has proven itself to be an excellent measure of affective mood state fluctuation in a wide variety of populations. It is a popular tool among sport psychologists who have used it to compare the prevailing moods of elite athletes and nonathletes. Six mood states are used in tension depression anger vigour fatigue confusion. Subjects are given a score for each trait according to their responses to certain statements which include key words such as unhappy, tense, careless, and cheerful. For each statement, subjects state how they feel at that moment, or how they felt over the previous day, few days, or week, by choosing one of the following responses not at all; a little; moderately; quite a lot; extremely.
