Nikolay Ozolin recommends asking the athlete to rate his willingness to go through a training session or competition on a 1 to 5 scale before the warm-up. 5 = very large desire, 4 = large, 3 = average, 2 = low, 1 = unwilling. This is very important, especially before competition. In principle, the willingness to train should always be high. It indicates proper training load and recovery. If the athlete is not game, have him warm up thoroughly till he sweats. If he is still unwilling, he has been overloaded too much or not recovered enough. You are witnessing early symptoms of overtraining.
