How Important Is Recovery Time In Sport

Here is a brief follow-up to our article on overtraining.

From Sue Falsone of Core Performance:

If all you do is train hard, you’re setting yourself up for failure, says Sue Falsone, director of performance physical therapy at Athletes’ Performance. That’s because your body needs time to repair itself after strenuous workouts. It also needs assistance in the form of “active rest,” like self-massage techniques or light cardio workouts. By giving your mind and body time to adapt to the stress of training, you’ll actually gain more strength and continue making improvements in the gym with less risk of burning out or getting injured.
