Webinar: Enhancing Recovery
Topic: Enhancing Recovery
All the hard work put into training is useless if the athlete doesn't take time to recover, absorb the effort, and grow stronger. USAT Level II coach Sage Rountree explains the physiology of recovery, describes ways athletes can track their own recovery, and explains methods to ensure athletes recover fully between workouts and races. These methods include everything from ice baths to compression socks, power naps to powerful massages. You'll learn which methods are proven to aid in recovery, and which aren't worth your time and money.
