Training Monotony

Monotony is considered a sign of an ineffective training program. Monotonous training has a similar level of stress each day. High levels of monotony tend to increase fatigue, have a higher risk of overtraining, and produce less benefit than low monotony routines. This new article is part of my work on Overtraining and introduces the concept of Monotony, how it can be calculated and provides a simple online form for evaluating training. I am building the Monotony calculator into my SportTrack plugin, which should be released soon (beta available on request).
