"How to prevent fatigue in football" session
Gregory Dupont of Université de Lille gave a very interesting presentation, which highlighted the strong correlation between fatigue and injury.
He reported an injury rate that was 6.2 times higher in players who played two matches per week, compared to those who only played one.
He, also, presented the findings of a review into post-match recovery strategies, which indicated the four major strategies proven to have a positive effect on fatigue and recovery are good sleep, proper nutrition, hydration and Cold Water Immersion.
