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.

Straight talk from really smart people

When you’re an athlete, the market for recovery products is insanely saturated. Bands, rollers, supplements, compression, heat, cold, electrical stimulation, massage...the list goes on and on.

So when it comes down to it, what actually matters?

This book gave me straight answers about how recovery affects my training and how my life affects my recovery. It even prioritizes the most important and effective strategies to implement.

I love the straight talk from scientists who know their stuff, rely on evidence, and aren’t selling you a damn thing other than their book.

Athletes who put time, energy and money into their training will find this book well worth their time and money we well.

Knowledgeable and easy to understand

Most comprehensive and knowledgeable book on recovery. It breaks down the scientific strategies in easy to understand topics. It makes so much sense and I’m applying it now!

Impactful information..

This has to be the best and most condensed information on recovery anywhere. It will have you re-examining your current recovery methods and (probably) focusing back on the tried and true methods that really work. Great job!

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.

The Best

Finally some intelligent and science based authors. This is how books on training SHOULD be. This is the kind of book you could read multiple times and get tons out of each time. It's packed with actual science based information and goes into detail on the mechanisms of the recommendations. Please Hoffmann, Israetel and Davis, put your other books on Audible! This book puts other books in the genre to shame. If you're looking to actually learn something useful GET THIS BOOK!!!

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.
