Recovery Strategies for Rugby

Apt infographic as the 6 nations has begun 😁

Great recent review by Tavares and colleagues (2017) discussing the benefits of different recovery modalities following training or matches in rugby 📈

Cold exposure, in the form of cold water immersion, cryotherapy or contrast baths seem to be the most well-supported strategies to employ in a rugby setting. However, frequent use of these modalities may negatively impact training adaptations 🤔

Furthermore, although the evidence supporting compression garment use can be debated, due to the low cost of such garments, for professional rugby players, compression garments may be beneficial ☝️

This paper does a great job of not only discussing the research but also how that fits into an applied setting, an often missing step in sports science
