Influence of tart cherry juice on indices of recovery following marathon running
TLDR
The cherry juice appears to provide a viable means to aid recovery following strenuous exercise by increasing total antioxidative capacity, reducing inflammation, lipid peroxidation and so aiding in the recovery of muscle function.
Cold water immersion and recovery from strenuous exercise: a meta-analysis
TLDR
Exercise will be subdivided into two categories: ‘eccentric exercise’ that refers to the stress caused from exercise incorporating high mechanical stress (eg, eccentric contractions) and ‘high-intensity exercise” that referring to stress causing from exercise with a high metabolic cost as well as some elements of eccentric muscle contractions.
Effects of Dynamic and Static Stretching on Vertical Jump Performance and Electromyographic Activity
TLDR
Some physiological basis is provided for the inclusion of DS and exclusion of SS in preparation for activities requiring jumping performance, and SS has a negative influence on VJ performance, whereas DS has a positive impact.
The Prevention and Treatment of Exercise-Induced Muscle Damage
TLDR
There is unequivocal evidence that prior bouts of eccentric exercise provide a protective effect against subsequent bouts of potentially damaging exercise, and further research is warranted to elucidate the most appropriate dose and frequency of interventions to attenuate EIMD and if these interventions attenuate the adaptation process.
Repeated bout effect after maximal eccentric exercise.
We hypothesized that a bout of high or low volume eccentric exercise would protect against muscle damage following a subsequent high volume bout and that adaptation would be attributable to neural
Exercise-induced muscle damage is reduced in resistance-trained males by branched chain amino acids: a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study
TLDR
It seems likely that BCAA provided greater bioavailablity of substrate to improve protein synthesis and thereby the extent of secondary muscle damage associated with strenuous resistance exercise is increased.
The Reliability and Validity of Fatigue Measures During Multiple-Sprint Work: An Issue Revisited
TLDR
The results support the percentage decrement calculation as the most valid and reliable method of quantifying fatigue in tests of multiple-sprint performance.
Exercise-Induced Muscle Damage Following a Bout of Sport Specific Repeated Sprints
TLDR
Data show that the repeated sprint protocol with a rapid deceleration precipitates significant levels of damage in the days following the exercise bout and therefore may be used as a suitable alternative to examine the damage response from a sport specific repeated sprint mode of exercise.
The effects of multiple cold water immersions on indices of muscle damage.
TLDR
It is concluded that repeated cold water immersions are ineffective in the recovery from heavy plyometric exercise and athletes and coaches should use caution before using this intervention as a recovery strategy.
