Publisher's Summary

Recovering from Training is the ultimate guide to the theory and practice of recovery from training. It describes the multiple causes, correlates, and consequences of fatigue, and also gives real-world recommendations on how to manage and reduce it for best health, fitness, and physique results.   

This audiobook is for lay persons interested in fitness, athletes, coaches, hobbyists, and sport scientists alike. It leans heavily on peer-reviewed science and explains the physiology of fatigue and recovery in great depth. While based on scientific data, it is made to be easily digested by nonscientists. Attention is also paid to outlining practical application that listeners can easily incorporate into recovery strategies for themselves or their athletes.  

Recovering from Training will allow the dedicated athlete and coach to plan out training, diet, and recovery strategies for optimal results. If you can recover better, you can train more, train harder, and make better gains over time. Peaking and tapering strategies are included so competitive athletes can make sure to recover on time for competitions. 

Even if you’re just interested in the theoretical underpinnings of recovery processes, this audiobook is very unlikely to disappoint. Lastly, because peer-reviewed journal articles are referenced, you can use this audiobook as a starting point to further your exploration of any of the recovery concepts discussed within.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Recovery questions? This is your last stop.

I cannot begin to describe how valuable this book is. Any questions you have about some rinky dink recovery tool will be answered. More importantly the way you program for yourself and clients will hopefully change for the better. SPOILER. Every activity comes at a price, choose what's most valuable to you and focus on being happy! Dr. James has a great voice for this, maintains a professional tone and lightens the mood every few lines. Fantastic book, I will be listening once more.

Love RP science-based knowledge distillation

I love having it in audio form even more than print - letting me learn while I commute. And Dr. James' narrating helps me make sure I don't miss any of the jokes I might have missed reading it myself.

A must have for your training library

A largely overlooked and under appreciated area of training with many complex systems at play. James’s narration is brilliant and well paced. This book does exceptionally well to cover as much ground as it does in such detail without overly labouring the take home information. Definitely a multi-listen to get the most out of it. Highly recommended.
