Abstract [en]

Little is known about injuries and risk factors in powerlifting. In other sports, training load is an important factor that influences injury risk. However, no method to quantify training load in powerlifting exist.Objectives:

The purpose of this study was to assess whether a standardised training and injury log is a feasible method to quantify training load and to prospectively record injuries.Method:The study was conducted in two phases with 7 respectively 8 powerlifters in each phase. In phase 1, the powerlifters logged their injuries and training for four weeks and then answered a feasibility questionnaire. Based on the results from the questionnaire, updates in the training and injury log were made and the powerlifters in phase 2 logged their training and injuries using the updated version and answered the same questionnaire as the powerlifters in phase 1.

Results:

It was possible to extract data and make calculations on training load based on the variables used in the training log and it was possible to calculate injury incidence and prevalence. Also, 9/12 powerlifters stated that they could use this standardised method for a period of at least 6 months.

Conclusion:

In conclusion, this standardised training and injury log seems to be a method to quantify training load and injuries in powerlifting. Further studies are needed to investigate the relationship between training load and injuries in powerlifting.
