Repeated sprints are an effective and time-efficient method of training team-sport athletes ( 29 ). Studies investigating the use of repeated sprints on performance, recovery, and metabolic response have attempted to optimize the training stimulus by varying work-to-rest ratios ( 20 ), numbers 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

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

associated with a number of symptoms that include soreness, a decreased range of motion, swelling, and a reduced ability of the affected muscle to produce force. 2 These symptoms can have a detrimental effect on performance, thus these strategies that can attenuate symptoms and accelerate recovery are

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

Cycle races are often characterized by the ability of competitors to perform repeated surges of severe intensity efforts (“attacks”) interspersed with short recovery periods. The critical power (CP) model first introduced by Monod and Scherrer 1 offers an objective physiological framework for the

Intermittent exercises are frequently used by athletes to improve aerobic fitness. These are defined by exercise intensity and duration, recovery intensity and duration, number of repetitions, and number of series. Intermittent exercise is also an intrinsic characteristic of children’s spontaneous
