Professional athletes need to train at high-intensity to elicit improvements in skill and all qualities of physical fitness relating to that particular sport, it is understood that too much high-intensity training, without adequate recovery periods, will have a detrimental effect on performance. An accumulation of fatigue or incomplete recovery can have a large influence on performance, especially during periods of regular competition. If player fatigue and recovery is not managed appropriately, team sport athletes may be at greater risk of underperformance.
This professional development will examine a new body of research that has examined the efficacy of methods for monitoring player fatigue and recovery, especially in high performance team sport athletes.
This a recording of a webinar presented by ESSA on 29 August 2018.
