The terms 'Intensity' + 'Training Load' relating to Workouts, either as you are writing up in Workout Creation or as you perform a workout, what do they relate to, measure, or Algorithm utilised to achieve these numbers.

How do they relate to familiar terms such as "Intensity Factor" + other Training Peak/WKO or Stress Score numbers used in exercise physiology?

Hi AA,

The calculations used for Intensity and Training Load are identical to IF and TSS. TrainingPeaks no longer licenses their metrics to third parties, so I couldn't use their trademarked names, but the formulas themselves are public knowledge.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
