Abstract

To maximize performance potential athletes require a delicate balance between training stress and recovery. Peak athletic performance is a multi-dimensional phenomenon, with key factors identified as the balance between stress, fatigue, and recovery, termed the stress/fatigue state. The stress/fatigue state has been described by as a psychosociophysiological phenomenon. Therefore, identification of the source of stress (psychological, social, and/or physical) and the type of resultant fatigue (psychological, physiological, and/or neurological) will allow athletic trainers to develop appropriate recovery strategies and assist the athlete with implementation of such strategies. This suggests that as athletic trainers we must monitor our athletes to determine their current stress/fatigue state and implement strategies to maintain balance between stress, fatigue, and recovery. As such, athletic trainers are continually searching for ways to implement practical recovery strategies that can optimize recovery from training and competition, as this will benefit the subsequent training session and performance period.
