The rapid growth of Paralympic sport in relation to levels of athletic performance has spurred an increase in the need for new means of strategic sports development. For this, a systematic and structured diagnostic assessments and training (periodization) in order to get favorable results and significant planning is required. Two of the most used methods for monitoring training loads of athletes are the heart rate and RPE, however only a few studies to observe the relationship between these two methods within the scope paradesportivo. To this end, the objective of this study is to compare different methods of controlling internal training load in basketball athletes in a wheelchair during a season of training. Longitudinal study of character. Upon completion of sample size calculation, we defined an appropriate minimum number of 15 male subjects, between 18 and 35 years, basketball players in wheelchairs. Assessment will follow the timeline established by the coaches from the monitoring of training cycles throughout the season of 2014, namely: body composition, heart rate training session and loads of effort of the training sessions, both in athletes (internal load), as for the coach (external load). The results are descriptively represented by measures of central tendency and its derivatives, and the inferential analysis based on the behavior of the data from the most appropriate statistical tests, adopting a significance level of p <0.05.
