We are all aware of the massive advances (ongoing) with sports and science. Following some posts on other threads I think it’s best to give this a home of it’s own.
I’d imagine there are a few lads and lassies here who are into that side of things in terms of their job and/or study. There seems to be quite a bit of conflicting and even wrong information out there and even on the threads - never a good thing. As any fan would, I am interested in this stuff - though a complete physical shambles and medical luddite myself.
Can someone explain some of the basics? What exactly is measured? What is this redline issue? Does it just pertain to muscular injury possibility or does it flag cardiovascular dangers and the like also? What are the dangers of ignoring it - are they potentially bigger than physical damage?
Do Mayo do things differently than say Dublin or Kerry?
All correct information welcome and in as layman friendly terms as possible!.
