An increase in research investigating recovery strategies has occurred alongside the increase in usage of recovery by elite athletes. Because there is inconsistent evidence regarding the benefits of recovery on performance, it is necessary to examine research design to identify possible strategies that enhance performance in different athlete settings. The purpose of this review is to examine available recovery literature specifically related to the time frame between performance assessments to… Expand

Figures and Topics from this paper

RECOVERY TECHNIQUES FOR ATHLETES
1 KEY POINTS • Recovery is becoming increasingly important to the high-performing athlete in a bid to reduce fatigue and enhance performance. • Some of the more common recovery techniques utilised byExpand
Recovery interventions and strategies for improved tennis performance
TLDR
This review will cover four broad recovery techniques commonly used in tennis with the belief that the interventions may improve athlete recovery and therefore improve adaptation and future performance. 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 and performance recovery of trained athletes: a meta-analytical review.
TLDR
Under appropriate conditions (whole-body cooling, recovery from sprint exercise), postexercise cooling seems to have positive effects that are large enough to be relevant for competitive athletes. 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
The effects of water immersion on recovery in Australianfootball
TLDR
It was established that in well trained AF players, both modalities were more effective at attenuating these changes than a passive recovery with CWI being more effective. Expand
Investigating factors which may influence recovery and preparation in professional rugby union.
To enhance understanding of recovery and preparation in rugby union, the aim of this thesis was to examine the impact of competition on key parameters and investigate factors which may influence theExpand
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. Expand
Regenerative interventions in professional football
TLDR
There are indications for cooling by cold water immersion and appropriate nutrition to be effective, whereas theoretical reasons suggest the application of active recovery and sleep interventions could enhance the recovery process. Expand
Compression Garments and Recovery from Exercise: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Considering exercise modality, compression most effectively enhanced recovery from resistance exercise, particularly at time points >24 h, and the use of CG would also be recommended to enhance next-day cycling performance. Expand

Using Recovery Modalities between Training Sessions in Elite Athletes
TLDR
There is no substantial scientific evidence to support the use of the recovery modalities reviewed to enhance the between-training session recovery of elite athletes. 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
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
Physiological Response to Water Immersion
TLDR
Water immersion may cause physiological changes within the body that could improve recovery from exercise and there may be a psychological benefit to athletes with a reduced cessation of fatigue during immersion. 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

TLDR
Compared to active recovery, contrast temperature water therapy decreases blood lactate concentration and heart rate but has little effect on subsequent repetitive sprinting performance. Expand
Effect of Postexercise Recovery Procedures Following Strenuous Stair-climb Running
This study compared the effects of hot/cold water immersion, static stretching, and no recovery (control) interventions on leg strength, rowing performance, and indicators of muscle soreness/damageExpand
THE EFFECT OF CONTRAST WATER THERAPY ON SYMPTOMS OF DELAYED ONSET MUSCLE SORENESS
This study examined the effect of contrast water therapy (CWT) on the physiological and functional symptoms of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) following DOMS-inducing leg press 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
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
