Recovery is a very loaded term. While most would agree that rest is important, when the conversation gets on how to aid recovery beyond that, it's often a chaos of different opinions and a blurry line between science and marketing.

New gimmicks are constantly being presented to us, promising to take our recovery to the next level, but unfortunately, most lack evidence behind their claims, and some are also heavily funded by other variables that make the method misleading and ineffective.

Excellent information on recovery for the modern athlete. I learned a great deal of information on what to look for as indicator of over training and once fatigued, how to manage the recovery process. There was very interesting information there about that trendy, often expensive recovery methods don’t work and often times hinder progress. I recommend this book for the person looking to optimize their recovery from whatever sport they partake in.

Such a great book. Dr Israetel strikes a great balance between science and application, as well as reinforcing both the importance of recovering well but that recovery strategies are only effective is training is both hard and smart too.

I will be taking some of the practical suggestions offered by the author and implementing them with the athletes I coach over the coming weeks.

Another essential text from Renaissance Periodization, this time providing analyses of various recovery modalities and prescriptions for proper utilization across strength, physique, and endurance sports.

Very informative books on what the main focus points should be on recovering from training. Also gives color on what recovery methods are very important and which are not as important. One more thing this book covers well is optimizing training cycles in order to maximize gains and recovery.
