Rest and Recovery

Be conscious of rest and recovery times when conditioning. This holds true between intervals as well as between workouts. Participants need to have enough time to replenish their oxygen intake in order to perform the next repetition.

The frequency at which exercises are performed is also important for avoiding injury and over-training. Players may need to follow heavy days with light days or work alternate muscle groups. For example, legs one day and then upper body the next day, or sprints one day, endurance the next. Or better yet, running one day, and a weight workout the next. The bottom line is: Know when to push and when to ease off.
