Summary The purpose of the present study was to determine the efficacy of the multi-component training distress scale (MTDS), in monitoring swimmers prior to national competition. Twenty-one national-level adolescent swimmers completed eight weeks of testing. Once a week participants completed an 8 × 50 m sprint test,
vertical jump test, sit-and-reach test, the MTDS and the
Recovery-Stress Questionnaire for Athletes (REST-Q). All testing
was incorporated into the swimmers’ normal training programme.
The REST-Q accounted for the following variances in performance:
flexibility (14.6%,p= 0.009), power output (17.7%,p= 0.003),swimming speed (15.5%,p
= 0.006) and swimming endurance(17.5%,p= 0.002). In comparison, the MTDS accounted for thefollowing variances in performance:
flexibility (12.1%, p= 0.095),power output (16.4%,p= 0.023), swimming speed (20.5%,p = 0.003) and swimming speed endurance (23.8%,p= 0.001).The findings of the current study suggest that both the REST-Q Sport and the MTDS have the capacity to predict performance on a range of fitness components associated with swimming.
