An invaluable guide to help athletes maximize training gains by making the most of their recovery time.
Recovery—physical and mental—is a red-hot topic, and the worlds of sports, technology, and commerce have all taken note. But which practices and devices really make a difference in recovery, and which should be avoided? What will truly maximize performance?
In this second edition of The Athlete’s Guide to Recovery, endurance and recovery coach Sage Rountree, PhD, explains exactly how to get the most out of training by optimizing recovery time. She provides easy-to-follow and practical recovery tips that include:
How athletes can measure their own state of recovery
What can go wrong when recovery is insufficient
Proven techniques to enhance recovery and improve performance
Evaluations of current tech devices
Sample recovery plans for all types of training and competition
Emphasizing the fundamentals of sleep, nutrition, and stress management, this second edition features up-to-date research that has emerged to support the importance of these basic recovery strategies and includes a much-needed, careful look at new devices on the market. Whether self-coached, coached, or team-sport athletes, The Athlete’s Guide to Recovery provides readers with an evidence-based approach to finding the right balance between stress and rest.
