Restoration Following Sport & Phsiology of Sport
« on: June 27, 2009, 01:25:13 am »
Post any studies related to restoration following sport or events. Hard to find comprehensive studies on this, but look at the first one as an example.

Also post any studies related to the physiology of sports; energy system break down, vo2, lactate levels, etc.

1. Time-course of Changes in Inflammatory and Performance Responses Following a Soccer Game: 2328: Board #108 May 30 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
[F-23 Free Communication/Poster - Exercise Immunology: MAY 30, 2008 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM: ROOM: Hall B]

VJ decreased (P<0.05) 24-h after the game and returned to pre-game values 72-h following the game. 1RM decreased (P<0.05) after the game, reached its lowest value at 48-h post-game, and returned to pre-game levels 96-h after the game. Sprinting ability declined (P<0.05) post-game, reached its lowest value 48-h post-game, and returned to pregame levels after 120-h. An acute phase inflammatory response consisted of a post-game peak of leukocyte count, cytokines and cortisol, a 24 h peak of CRP, TBARS, and DOMS, a 48 h peak of CK, LDH, and PC, and a 72 h peak of uric acid.

2. The effect of recovery strategies on physical performance and cumulative fatigue in competitive basketball

Sprint and agility performance decreased by 0.7% (s = 1.3) and 2.0% (s = 1.9) respectively. Vertical jump decreased substantially after the first day for all treatments, and remained suppressed post-tournament. Cold water immersion was substantially better in maintaining 20-m acceleration with only a 0.5% (s = 1.4) reduction in 20-m time after 3 days compared with a 3.2% (s = 1.6) reduction for compression. Cold water immersion (-1.4%, s = 1.7) and compression (-1.5%, s = 1.7) showed similar substantial benefits in maintaining line-drill performance over the tournament, whereas carbohydrate + stretching elicited a 0.4% (s = 1.8) reduction. Sit-and-reach flexibility decreased for all groups, although cold water immersion resulted in the smallest reduction in flexibility.  In conclusion, cold water immersion appears to promote better restoration of physical performance measures than carbohydrate + stretching routines and compression garments.
