High performance sport and the importance of successful performances have led coaches, athletes, administers and sport science personnel to continually seek any winning edge or margin that may improve performance. It follows that the rate and quality of recovery is extremely important for the high performance athlete and that optimal recovery may provide numerous benefits during repetitive high-level training and competition. Understanding different recovery interventions and their effect on fatigue, muscle injury, recovery and performance is important.
Recovery aims to restore physiological and psychological processes, so that the athlete can compete or train multiple times per week at an appropriate level. Recovery from training and competition is complex and involves numerous factors. It is also typically dependent on the nature of the exercise performed and any other outside stressors that the athlete may be exposed to. Athletic performance is affected by numerous factors and therefore, adequate recovery should also consider such factors.

This webinar will cover:
Understanding fatigue
Timing of recovery - Concept that recovery is a 24 hour phenomenon
Aims of Recovery - Encouraging athletes to have confidence to know what they need to do to recover
Types of Recovery including hydrotherapy, active recovery, stretching, compression garments, massage, sleep and nutrition.
Recovery Formula - Proactive rather than reactive approach 
Practical Implications
