Recovery

Recovery in sports science refers to the process of restoring the body after strenuous physical activity. This category emphasises techniques and strategies aimed at reducing the risk of injury and enhancing overall athletic performance.

As the world of recovery is very complex, our aim is to simplify that science so that coaches, athletes, and everybody else can understand how to use recovery methods in order to improve sports performance.
