Our journal of the month for April is the International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance (IJSPP). The journal has been in existence since 2006 and has an impact factor of 3.042.
The use of cold-water immersion (CWI) for post-exercise recovery has become increasingly prevalent in recent years. We’ve all seen the images and heard about athletes jumping in ice baths or cold water post game (just like Andy Murray after winning Wimbledon). However is it for everyone?
The International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance by Human Kinetics has recently published an article focusing specifically on why some of the current literature may show variability and disparity in the effectiveness of CWI for recovery of athletic performance by examining the body temperature and cardiovascular responses underpinning CWI and how they are related to performance benefits.
This review also examines how individual characteristics (such as physique traits), differences in water-immersion protocol (depth, duration, temperature) and exercise type (endurance vs maximal) interact with these mechanisms. Continue reading “Could you benefit from cold-water immersion?”
As we continue to work with The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) we are happy to announce our latest webinar of the series – Assessment of movement quality: panacea or false dawn?
This course uses the book Dumbbell Training to offer 15 programmes for increasing power, speed, agility and balance. The concepts covered can be used with clients and athletes across a number of sports.
An accompanying study guide outlines the course’s learning objectives, helping you focus on the important concepts within the text. The study guide includes a table of contents, course syllabus, key terminology, chapter activities and a referenced study guide answer key.
