The process of evolution in nature relies on organisms’ ability to adapt and respond to various environmental stressors and challenges over time. Similarly, our bodies flourish and grow stronger when given the chance and time to recover after being subjected to a controlled level of stress. In the realm of sports, this phenomenon is known as ‘super-compensation,’ forming the cornerstone of sustained progress in performance. In this session we will explore how elite athletes’ load/recovery strategies can benefit corporate professionals, highlight the essentials of performance readiness management, and delve deeply into the vital importance of sleep for recovery.
