The performance management chart (PMC) is one of the lifelines between an athlete and their structured training work load. Many of my listeners, customers and athletes have asked me what all those squiggly little lines and numbers mean? Sure, there’s a basic concept of “keep on climbing” the fitness mountain, but it’s a far more nuanced tool than just that, revealing information about your fitness, form and where you may potentially be overdoing it.
After the jump we’ll discuss the basics of the PMC, how you manage your training and your fitness using a PMC, how to read all those little lines and how you can use the PMC as a tool to maximize your performance. I’ll also talk about what the PMC CAN’T do, which is perhaps the most important thing to know.
