6. Recovery Speed
How fast you recover after a training session is an important aspect of exercise and achieving results. We’ll take you through genes associated with recovery speed and investigate oxidative stress, inflammation, micronutrient needs and the impact overtraining can have on hampering your clients from reaching their goals. After this module you’ll be well-equipped to advise people on how they should interpret their reports in terms of their recovery and how they can modify their training, recovery techniques and eating plan to suit their needs.
