PURPOSE The purpose of this investigation was to assess the effects of alterations in taper components on performance in competitive athletes, through a meta-analysis. [...] Key Method Twenty-seven of 182 potential studies met these criteria and were included in the analysis. The dependent variable was performance, and the independent variables were the decrease in training intensity, volume, and frequency, as well as the pattern of the taper and its duration.Expand
