About the course

In today’s competitive sport environment, discovering effective methods of facilitating optimal athletic performance is paramount to success. The recovery period is essential in maintaining athletes physical and psychological well-being and crucial in the pursuit of intense physical training and satisfying performances. This course will present techniques and modalities currently used to enhance athletes recovery, optimize training time, and avoid overreaching & overtraining. The participants will find proven strategies for enhancing the recovery process and learn the importance of structuring an individualized and evidenced based recovery plan for improving performance. Appealing to a broad audience, this course will provide a scientific base of information as well as specific elements that allow for practical application in the real world on the basis of case-studies and practical examples with well-trained and elite athletes. These case studies will complement the scientific explanations by bringing additional context to the discussion of safe recovery modalities and how to apply those concepts to specific sports.

Yann Le Meur

My name is Yann Le Meur. I’m a French sport scientist. I earned a Ph.D in Physiology of Exercise from the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis in 2010 by studying the performance factors in high-level Olympic distance triathlon. My main research interests focus on performance analysis, training methodology, prevention of overreaching and recovery (~40 scientific publications). At the same time, I’m currently editorial member of different scientific journals (Sports Medicine, British Journal of Sport Medicine, Science & Medicine in Football, European Journal of Sports Sciences & International Journal of Sport Nutrition, Exercise and Metabolism). The biggest part of my work is not dedicated to research but mainly to work with elite athletes on a daily basis. Over the last decade, I worked with several French Olympic teams for Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games in both individual (triathlon, swimming, mountain-bike cycling and modern pentathlon) and team sports (synchronized swimming and rugby sevens). Since april 2016, I’m employed at full time by AS Monaco Football Club as scientific advisor of the club.

I’m managing this website on my leisure time to promote what is new is sports sciences. Keep in mind that these infographics are only a snapshot of scientific articles, which do not represent a substitute of these papers. So it remains essential to read the full papers! I hope that you will enjoy it and that you will share the word. If you want to contact me, do not hesitate and use the dedicated “Contact” section of the main menu.
