Recovery techniques are becoming increasingly important to the high performing fitness athlete, and trainers, to reduce fatigue, enhance performance, and prepare for the next work-out. There are many techniques, but only a few have been proven by research to be effective. The research has focused primarily on foam rolling, cold water baths, post work-out snack, sleep, and stretching.
