Introduction

Recovery after training and competition allows elite athletes to return to their normal physiological and psychological state as rapidly as possible. Various techniques are employed by athletes so that performance in their next competition or training session will not be unduly compromised by muscle soreness and/or fatigue. 

There is now increasing scientific evidence supporting the benefits of recovery techniques to enhance human performance in a number of physical exercise, strength conditioning and fitness domains—and these are not limited to elite sports athletes.
