It is well known that high-intensity and/or unaccustomed eccentric exercise causes EIMD through exposure to an inappropriate level of mechanical stress. 6 EIMD results in soreness, myofibrillar disruption, and release of

) following the resolution of cognitive and behavioral symptoms; however, asymptomatic individuals often exhibit persist motor impairments in locomotion 1 and postural control 2 that can extend beyond acute recovery. Therefore, a need remains relative to concussion evaluations to detect subtle motor

Repeated-sprint ability is an important attribute for basketball players given the frequent high-intensity movements performed across game-play. 1 , 2 Repeated-sprints are short (≤10 s) and executed at maximal effort with brief recovery (≤60 s) between bouts. 3 During repeated-sprints, adenosine

Recovery monitoring is a staple feature in the daily routine of most professional football clubs. The objective is to measure changes in fatigue/stress and recovery and, when appropriate, take action to avoid overtraining or exposure to high loads. 1 Several different tools are used either alone
