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

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

Therefore, the aim of the present study was to analyze the acute and short-term physical

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
