To maximize human performance, the recovery process is as important as the exercise training process. Poor recovery may be associated with lower performance and higher risk for injury in different sports modalities.
However, historically there are many more scientific studies aiming to understand the optimal load during training than to design optimal recovery plans. Several ergogenic aids (e.g., substances, nutrients, techniques, devices, garments) are supposed to improve physiological and psychological variables that would speed up the recovery of performance, directly or indirectly. In other words, they would allow the body to be ready for maximal performance earlier, generating many benefits.
Despite the fact that several coaches and athletes regularly use these strategies to improve recovery after training and matches, the scientific basis supporting these approaches is not always solid. Thus, scientific studies should test the efficacy of these strategies and their mechanisms.
This Special Issue aims to present scientific outcomes of well-controlled studies that show the efficacy of (or refute) strategies to enhance recovery of performance (e.g., hyperoxia, ischemic conditioning, myofascial release, compression garments, supplements, grounding).
