PURPOSE Cooling after exercise has been investigated as a method to improve recovery during intensive training or competition periods. As many studies have included untrained subjects, the transfer of those results to trained athletes is questionable. METHODS Therefore, the authors conducted a literature search and located 21 peer-reviewed randomized controlled trials addressing the effects of cooling on performance recovery in trained athletes. RESULTS For all studies, the effect of… Expand
Massage and Performance Recovery: A Meta-Analytical Review
TLDR
The effects of massage on performance recovery are rather small and partly unclear, but can be relevant under appropriate circumstances (short-term recovery after intensive mixed training), but it remains questionable if the limited effects justify the widespread use of massage as a recovery intervention in competitive athletes.

Cold applications for recovery in adolescent athletes: a systematic review and meta analysis
TLDR
The aim of this review was to assess the current knowledge base on the use of ice/cold applications for recovery purposes in adolescent athletes in order to provide useful guidelines for sports scientists, medical practitioners, physiotherapists and coaches working with such populations as well as developing research questions for further research activities in this area.

Can Cold Water Immersion Enhance Recovery in Elite Olympic Weightlifters? An Individualized Perspective.
TLDR
In general, CWI did not prove to be an effective tool to enhance recovery in elite Olympic weightlifters over a 3-day intensive training period, and it seems that athletes are best advised on a case-by-case basis. Expand
Can cold water immersion enhance recovery in elite Olympic weightlifters? An individualized perspective.
TLDR
In general, CWI did not prove to be an effective tool to enhance recovery in elite Olympic weightlifters over a three day intensive training period and it appears that athletes are best advised on a case-by-case basis. Expand
Does Cold-Water Immersion After Strength Training Attenuate Training Adaptation?
TLDR
The present investigation suggests small negative effects of regular cooling on strength training adaptations, which are similar to those observed for muscle thickness. Expand
Evaluation of cold water immersion and contrast water therapy for recovery with well-trained team sport athletes: Rugby Union
TLDR
A systematic review with meta-analysis of literature highlighted the need for research into recovery to examine beyond the acute phase and the effectiveness of hydrotherapy for recovery as measured across performance in two simulated Rugby Union games. Expand
Cold-Water Immersion for Athletic Recovery: One Size Does Not Fit All.
TLDR
Why some of the current literature may show variability and disparity in the effectiveness of CWI for recovery of athletic performance is examined by examining the body temperature and cardiovascular responses underpinning CWI and how they are related to performance benefits. Expand
Cooling interventions for athletes: An overview of effectiveness, physiological mechanisms, and practical considerations
TLDR
The aim of the present review is to provide a comprehensive overview of current scientific knowledge in the field of pre-cooling, per- cooling and post- cooling techniques, and to identify the optimal cooling technique. Expand
Comparison of between-training-sessions recovery strategies for world-class BMX pilots.
TLDR
For elite BMX riders, between training days, nutritional and/or CWI recovery strategies appear to be best for reducing muscle fatigue and increasing the capacity to withstand the training schedule. Expand
Recovery From Eccentric Squat Exercise in Resistance-Trained Young and Master Athletes With Similar Maximum Strength: Combining Cold Water Immersion and Compression
The aim of this study was to investigate whether recovery from eccentric squat exercise varies depending on age and to assess whether the use of a mixed-method recovery (MMR) consisting of cold waterExpand

Pre-Cooling and Sports Performance
TLDR
In summary, pre-cooling can effectively enhance endurance performance, particularly in hot environments, whereas sprint exercise is barely affected and well trained athletes may benefit in a typical competition setting with practical and relevant effects. Expand
The effect of recovery strategies on physical performance and cumulative fatigue in competitive basketball
TLDR
In conclusion, cold water immersion appears to promote better restoration of physical performance measures than carbohydrate + stretching routines and compression garments. Expand
Effect of hydrotherapy on recovery from fatigue.
TLDR
CWI and CWT appear to improve recovery from high-intensity cycling when compared to HWI and PAS, with athletes better able to maintain performance across a five-day period. Expand
The Effects of Recovery Interventions on Consecutive Days of Intermittent Sprint Exercise
TLDR
It is likely that while interventions may be applicable to team sport practices, the 24-hour recovery period between exercise bouts was sufficient to allow performance to be maintained, regardless of recovery interventions. Expand
Effect of cryotherapy on muscle soreness and strength following eccentric exercise.
TLDR
The result suggest that the use of cryotherapy immediately following damaging eccentric exercise may not provide the same therapeutic benefits commonly attributed to cryotherapy following traumatic muscle injury. Expand
Short term effects of various water immersions on recovery from exhaustive intermittent exercise
TLDR
Results indicate that the practice of cold water immersion and contrast water therapy are more effective immersion modalities to promote a faster acute recovery of maximal anaerobic performances (MVC and 30″ all-out respectively) after an intermittent exhaustive exercise. Expand
Effect of water immersion methods on post-exercise recovery from simulated team sport exercise.
TLDR
COLD following exhaustive simulated team sports exercise offers greater recovery benefits than CWI or control treatments, and facilitated a more rapid return to baseline repeated sprint performances. Expand
Cooling interventions for the protection and recovery of exercise performance from exercise-induced heat stress.
TLDR
The use of cooling interventions on both the prevention of heat stress and recovery of performance from exercise-induced heat stress are discussed. Expand
Design and analysis of research on sport performance enhancement.
TLDR
Assessment of research aimed at measuring performance enhancements that affect success of individual elite athletes in competitive events found that estimates of enhancement of performance in laboratory or field tests in most previous studies may not apply to elite athletesIn competitive events.

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.
