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

complexity of the condition, the multifactorial etiology, and the fact that imbalances between training load and recovery may not be the primary reason for the condition. 1 Exercise is a source of reactive nitrogen and oxygen species (RNOS), leading to alterations in redox homeostasis (ARH). 3 RNOS are

Countermovement jump (CMJ) tests are commonly used to assess recovery of muscle function following strenuous exercise. Impairments in CMJ have been demonstrated on the days following various forms of exercise including drop jump protocols, 1 – 3 repeated sprint, and simulated field sport tests 4

Baltimore, Spatialized Urban Poverty, and Homelessness The more than two-year study of a physical cultural organization that mobilized running with those housed in temporary recovery facilities upon which this project was based occurred in Baltimore, MD. The organization, Back on My Feet, is a

Optimizing postexercise recovery windows is an invaluable aspect of athletes’ physical preparation cycles. The importance of this window is highlighted by the compounding effects of successive training and/or competitive bouts on physiological and physical function, attributed to residual fatigue

Cold-water immersion (CWI) is a popular recovery strategy routinely used by athletes to hasten the body’s return to its preexercise state. 1 Recently, the popularity of CWI in practical settings has led to increased research. 2 Studies to date have focused predominantly on the recovery of

It is well established that in order to adapt to a training stimulus, an optimal balance between training stress and recovery is required ( 39 ). Failure to provide appropriate periods of recovery between training sessions and within programs can lead to lowered training capacity ( 9 , 22 ) or

Elite athletes are under considerable physiological stress due to high levels of training and performance requirements. 1 Increased stress can have negative effects on performance, particularly if there is an imbalance between training load and recovery. 2 Insufficient recovery can lead to a
