Optimizing Recovery – PREPARE

On my way to the ACSM Health & Fitness Summit #ACSMSummit to present on evidence based strategies to optimize recovery and prevent over-reaching.  Looking forward to sharing this information with the fitness professional community at this wonderful conference.

During this presentation we will discuss the multiple factors that lead to fatigue and ultimately over-reaching / over-training following repeated bouts of strenuous exercise.  We will then discuss the 3R’s system, which focuses on evidence based recovery strategies to maximize the benefits of strenuous exercise and minimize the risk of a catabolic response.  As part of this process we’ve developed the PREPARE score (Planned Recovery to Enhance Performance and Regenerate), which is a survey individuals can take and see their recovery scores in the 3R areas (Re-Fuel, Rest, Retain Movement Efficiency).  The score is meant to help guide individuals optimize their recovery behaviors during strenuous training periods to maximize the anabolic response and minimize the catabolic response of strenuous training regimens.

A PDF copy of the presentation is available.  Enjoy!  DAP

    This is a great presentation….I talk about this stuff all the time to my young athletes and I really enjoyed how you’ve laid it out. Wish I could have been there to hear you speak!
