Endurance athletes plan their workouts carefully, yet it's during the crucial recovery period between workouts that they become faster at their sports. Recovery is when the body repairs itself and adapts to become stronger than before. Those who neglect their recovery will gain little from training, risking injury, overtraining, and burnout.
Rountree's book guides athletes to full recovery and improved performance. She explains how much rest athletes need, how to measure fatigue, and how to make the best use of recovery tools.
Drawing on her own experience and extensive interviews with coaches, trainers, and elite athletes, Rountree details daily recovery practices, demystifying common aids like compression apparel, supplements, and ice baths as well as more exotic technologies. Athletes will discover which methods work and how and when they are most effective.
Rountree offers recovery plans for a variety of events, from short distance bike races to ultramarathons, so athletes can rest assured that they are ready for the next phase of training and racing.
The Athlete's Guide to Recovery is an invaluable resource that enables athletes to maintain the balance between hard training and rest so that they can feel great and compete at their highest capability.
