The importance of sport science in the physical preparation of Olympic athletes' is unquestionable; with sport science often highlighted by athletes as one of the most important factors in fatigue monitoring and recovery management. Coaches, athletes, sport scientists, medical staff must center on the fundamental principle of the 'training response', of which, the stress/fatigue state is a key component. That is to say – the ability to monitor and manage the stress/fatigue state ultimately determines the athlete's training response. Therefore, if an athlete is not closely monitored imbalance in the stress/fatigue state will often lead to diminished performance. As such, development of an elite athletes' performance potential requires a systematic approach to training, with the use of sport science methods an integral component of the overall training plan. This paper shall (1) overview current concepts in sport science aimed at monitoring athletes training response and stress/fatigue state; and (2) describe the physical preparation strategies utilized by the Indonesian High Performance Program for the Games of the XXXI Olympiad, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
