SMA – simple moving average, EWMAW – exponentially weighted moving averages as per Williams et al. (2016), EWMAL  exponentially weighted moving averages as per Lazarus et al. (2017), TL – training load, TSB – training stress balance, DIFF – differential load, VOL21  the volatility (standard deviation) of values in the last 21 days prior to competition, CH21  the value 21 days prior to competition subtracted from the value on the day of the competition, r – correlation coefficient; CI – confidence interval.
