Recovery plays a substantial and crucial function in performance enhancement. I place an emphasis on the importance of proper sleep, hydration, and nutrition—the three most essential, important, proven, and dependable recovery modalities. Understanding how and why to fuel your body as an athlete plays an critical role in recovering not only from workouts, but also from practices, games, and even injuries.
Primary in injury prevention following a proper and progressive sprint and strength program for team sport athletes is adequate sleep, adequate hydration, and adequate nutrition. Often times, this is the missing link for many athletes in them attaining their performance goals.
Additionally, I place an emphasis on mobility and soft tissue work (myofascial release, including foam rolling and muscle percussive therapy) to reduce the risk of an injury, prepare for training sessions, and recover from training sessions.
