Best Practices for Rest/Recovery and Adaptation “The key to training and racing success”

What is Recovery?

In simple terms, recovery is the time that is needed to repair the damage done to the body caused by training or competition. Or, it could be defined as the ability to meet or exceed performance in a particular activity.

Recovery includes:

1) Normalization of physiological functions (e.g., blood pressure, cardiac cycle)

2) Return to homeostasis (resting cell environment)

3) Restoration of energy stores (blood glucose and muscle glycogen)
