Training Recovery – An Essential Component to Athletic Performance

Training Recovery is an Essential Component of Athletic Training

Effective training recovery is becoming the difference between success and failure in sport…

The main principle of training recovery is that athletes require sufficient time to recuperate from training and competition. Many experts agree that an athlete’s ability to recover from workouts is equally as important as the workout itself.

The rest stage is when the body adapts to the stress that comes from intense training and competition.

We have put together a short quiz to help you evaluate your own rest and training recovery.

Taking this 7 item questionnaire at the same time and day each week can help you monitor your perceived exertion and recovery efforts.
