A Hydraulic Model Outperforms WorkBalance Models for Predicting Recovery Kinetics From Intermittent Exercise
Data Science advances in sports commonly involve “big data”, i.e., large sportrelated data sets. However, such big data sets are not always available, necessitating specialized models that apply to relatively few observations. One important area of sportscience research that features small data sets is the study of recovery from exercise. In this area, models are…

A Generalised Hydraulic Performance Model for Intermittent Exercise
This is my PhD thesis. It wraps all related publications into one narrative. Summary: Data science advances in sports commonly involve ‘big data’, i.e., large sportrelated data sets. However, such big data sets are not always available, necessitating specialized models that apply to relatively few observations. One important area of sport science research that features…

A New Pathway to Approximate Energy Expenditure and Recovery of an Athlete
This work proposes to use evolutionary computation as a pathway to allow a new perspective on the modeling of energy expenditure and recovery of an individual athlete during exercise. We revisit a theoretical concept called the “three component hydraulic model” which is designed to simulate metabolic systems during exercise and which is able to address…
