This study examined how practitioners who provide sport psychology support use counseling principles and skills to develop practitioner-athlete relationships. Semistructured interviews were conducted with thirteen competent practitioners (Mean age = 41.2 ± 10.9 years old, five men, eight women). Thematic analysis revealed that the participants used a range of counseling principles to develop practitioner-athlete relationships including: the facilitative conditions, self-disclosure, counseling skills, the formation of working alliances, and awareness of the unreal relationship. The participants also described using noncounseling strategies (e.g., gaining an understanding of the athlete’s sporting environment) to build relationships with their athletes. There was considerable variation between the participants both in the training that they had received in counseling principles and skills, and how they applied them. It was concluded that counseling principles and skills play a significant role in the development of practitioner-athlete relationships.

The load–velocity relationship is widely recognized for its ability to accurately predict the 1-repetition maximum (1RM) in both lower-body and upper-body exercises. 1 – 3 With the data generated by linear-regression models, practitioners can frequently monitor and adjust the resistance

On the contrary, the intracyclic velocity variation ( dv ) is one of the most applied parameters by academics and practitioners to evaluate the efficiency of swimmers, even though the relationship with performance is not

The physiological response to a given training load is commonly called the dose–response relationship and is considered a fundamental component of training. 1 It has been suggested that a valid measure of training load should show a strong dose–response relationship with a particular training

Therefore, the aim of this study was to assess the relationship between prescribed bowling intensities, bowling velocity, and data outputs from
