Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes-2nd Edition
Despite the widespread integration of hydrotherapy into an athlete�s postexercise recovery regime, information regarding these interventions is largely anecdotal. Although a number of physiological responses to water immersion are well researched, the underlying mechanisms related to postexercise recovery are poorly understood.
Recovery for Performance in Sport eBook
In many sporting activities, because of how competitions are designed, athletes are forced to reproduce performances within a short time frame.
Physiological Aspects of Sport Training and Performance With Web Resource-2nd Edition
It has been demonstrated that exercise training in previously sedentary individuals has beneficial effects in terms of reducing the incidence of upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) (Nieman et al. 1990; Nieman, Hensen, et al. 1993).
