Sport, Recovery and Performance is a unique multi-disciplinary collection which examines both the psychological and physiological dimensions to recovery from sport. Including contributions from medicine, neuroscience, psychology and sport science, the book expertly explores the implications for applied and strategic interventions to both retain and stabilize performance, and promote health and well-being. Including chapters written by its leading experts, the book represents an important milestone in this evolving field of study. It covers issues around measuring recovery, the impact of overtraining on sleep and mental health, and addresses topics such as the impact of travel on performance. The book informs not only how managing recovery can improve performance, but also offers insights in how recovery can sustain athletes’ physical and mental health. Citing research from a range of individual and team sports, as well as extreme situations and the workplace, this is an important book that will be widely read across the sport sciences.

This book presents recent research addressing the effects of different types of compression clothing on sport performance and recovery after exercise. It is also the first book that summarizes the effects of compression clothing on all main motor abilities in the context of various sports, offering a wealth of practical guidelines on how to optimize performance and recovery with the help of compression clothing. The book examines the effects of this clothing on physiological, psychological and biomechanical parameters including endurance, speed, strength, power, and motor control. It explains the basic principles involved in the reasonable application of compression garments in connection with different kinds of exercise, and describes the essential mechanisms of how compression garments work in a reader-friendly format that addresses the needs of researchers, athletes and coaches alike.

Recovery stress Questionnaire for Athletes

Recovery has long been an overlooked aspect of training for sports. Monitoring athletes with theRecovery-Stress Questionnaire for Athletesis a great step toward determining the extent to which an athlete is physically or mentally stressed and formulating strategies for recovery. In short, overtraining, burnout, and decreased performance can be dramatically reduced. The complete questionnaire package, developed by Michael Kellmann, PhD, and K. Wolfgang Kallus, PhD, provides a variety of tools to measure and track an athlete's recovery, including -two complete questionnaires (72- and 56-item forms), -manual scoring keys, -profile sheets, -a user manual that describes questionnaire development and data and profile interpretation, and -a computerized scoring database on CD. TheRecovery-Stress Questionnaire for Athletesidentifies the current recovery-stress states of athletes and provides a complete picture of the extent of stress they are experiencing. The questionnaire is based on the hypothesis that an accumulation of stress in different areas of life, with insufficient opportunity for recovery, leads to a compromised psychophysical state. Stress states are based on 12 non-specific and seven sport-specific scales. These scales draw a precise profile of an athlete's state, which demonstrates the difference between theRecovery-Stress Questionnaire for Athletesand other popular measurement tools, which measure only current mood states. Evaluation based on theRecovery-Stress Questionnaire for Athletesscales immediately provides valuable information on areas where improvement is needed. This information can be used to modify future behavior. The questionnaire is ideal for applied settings. As an added benefit, purchasers of theRecovery-Stress Questionnaire for Athletes: User Manualare encouraged to photocopy as many copies of the questionnaires as needed for both applied and research purposes. Recovery is vital in the sport training process as well as in everyday life. TheRecovery-Stress Questionnaire for Athleteshelps users to formulate strategies to enhance recovery, making training more effective.

Over the last decades, our understanding of the relationship between thermoregulation, performance and fatigue has changed dramatically. New advances in technology and methodology permitted the study of rising and decreasing body temperature on metabolism and provided insights into the role the nervous system plays in determining human performance under thermally stressful situations. Further analysis of previous research has been necessary in addition to considering theories derived from complimentary areas of research such as evolutionary biology, anthropology and cellular and molecular biology. This publication provides different interpretations of recent research for a better understanding of the limitations of thermoregulation. In particular, it presents evidence for the human's ability to anticipate thermal limits and adjust their performance accordingly so that cellular homeostasis is preserved. Further, the book is featuring the inclusion of the effect of reduced body temperature on muscular performance and endurance which today is a popular method for providing avenues of reduced thermal strain and recovery from exercise. This publication will be an essential read for those working in thermal medicine, exercise physiology and human performance.

Written by experts in exercise physiology, exercise science, and biomechanics, this volume focuses specifically on exercise science in relation to athletic performance and to the diagnosis, management, and prevention of athletic injuries. The text is logically organized into sections on energy metabolism, exercise physiology, organ system responses to exercise, general concerns in applied exercise science, sports biomechanics, and applied sports physiology. The biomechanics and sports physiology sections focus on particular sports, to determine specific diagnosis and treatment aspects. The book also includes chapters on exercise in children and the elderly, environmental influences on physical performance, overtraining, chronobiology, and microgravity.
