PHYSIOLOGIST

Rob Rupf

Rob is an experienced national team physiologist and he works specifically with identifying training adaptations and fatigue.  Blood lactate testing is conducted every 6-7 weeks to monitor changes in fitness and providing specific aerobic training speeds for the athletes.  Wellness questionnaires are utilised each morning before workout.  Over time this provides a baseline for the athletes’ fitness vs their fatigue.  At the end of each day Rob requires the athletes to provide feedback on their perceived exertion.  Rob is currently doing his PHD.
