It is important to assure a correct recovery between training sessions and even between the different exercises of the same session to maximize adaptations to training.

CAN BREATH HOLDING IMPROVE PERFORMANCE?

The Mexico 1968 Olympic Games represented a turning point in altitude training. Due to the dominance of athletes acclimatised to the altitude during the Games (they were held at an altitude of 2,340 m),1 in the 1970s, the implications of training or living in hypoxic conditions to improve performance started to be studied.

METABOLITES: A NEW BIOMARKER TO OPTIMIZE PERFORMANCE

Monitoring and quantifying the plethora of internal and external factors associated with performance allows us to better understand training adaptations and, based on these, make adjustments of the players’ condition.

NETWORK THEORY CAN BE APPLIED IN TECHNICAL DECISION MAKING

Applying network theory to football is simply one more method to obtain additional information about a football match.
