  • Recovery Process
    • Excess Post-exercise oxygen consumption
      • Volume of oxygen consumed post-exercise to return the body to a pre-exercise state
    • Fast alactacid component
      • First stage of recovery - up to 3 minutes
      • Phospocreatine stores restored
        • 3 minutes
        • 30 seconds for 50%
        • Requires 3-4litres of oxygen
      • Replenishment of blood and muscle oxygen
        • Within first minute - blood stream resaturated
        • within 3 minutes - restored oxymyoglobin link in muscle cells
    • Slow lactacid component
      • Second stage of recovery - from 3mins up to 24hrs
      • Elevated ventilation and circulation
        • Post-exercise respiratory rate, depth and HR remain elevated
        • Gradual decrease to resting levels to maximise delivery of 02
      • Elevated body temperature
        • Increases metabolic rate
      • Removal of lactic acid
        • 50-75% converted back into pyruvic acid
        • 10-25% can be converted back into glucose/ glycogen
        • Converted into proteins for the Cori cycle
        • Removed vis sweating/ urine
    • Implications of recovery on training
      • Warm up
        • minimise time spent using anaerobic energy = less oxygen deficit
      • Active recovery
        • Maintains respiratory rate and HR speeding up removal of lactic acid
      • Cooling aids
        • Speed up lactic acid removal
        • reduce muscle soreness
      • Intensity of training
        • High intensity
          • Increase muscle mass
            • Increase ATP/PC stores
              • Boosts efficiency of fast component
          • Increase tolerance to lactic acid
            • Increase buffering capacity
          • delay oBLA
      • Nutrition
      • Work to relief ratio
      • Tactics
