Rest and Recovery
Rest is the period of time that is allowed for recovery to take
Recovery is the time required for the repair of damage to the
body caused by physical activity.
Making sure there is enough time between training sessions
so that there is time for adaptations to take place, time for
any damage to repair and energy stores to replenish.
Build a rest day into your
training programme. You
could also alternate the
intensity of the training you
This means matching the training to the
requirements of the individual
It is important to make sure the training
is appropriate for the person, as
everyone is different. Two people
may play the same position in a
particular sport but if one is at a
higher level of fitness then following
the training programme designed for
the less fit player will be useless to
e.g. Jess is 13 and her brother is 16. They both play
football. Jess trains twice a week for 30 minutes
whilst her brother trains every other day for 60
Progressive overload must show an increase over
time and it must be gradual so no injuries
Progressive overload means gradually increasing
the amount of work in training so that fitness
gains occur, but without the potential for injury.
For example, if I did 5
sit ups one week, I
might do 10 the next
to gradually increase
