ABSTRACT: BETWEEN TRAINING FOR IMPROVED ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE, CLASSROOM DEMANDS, AND LEAVING TIME FOR A SOCIAL LIFE, THE DEMANDS ON COLLEGIATE ATHLETES ARE SIGNIFICANT. AS A RESULT, IT IS IMPORTANT FOR STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACHES TO INCLUDE RECOVERY METHODS INTO THE TRAINING PROGRAM THAT WILL PROMOTE RECOVERY FROM TRAINING. OPTIMAL IMPROVEMENTS IN PERFORMANCE ARE IMPOSSIBLE WITHOUT ALLOWING YOUR ATHLETES TO RECOVER FROM THE DEMANDS OF BEING A STUDENT-ATHLETE. WE ASKED OUR PANEL OF COLLEGIATE STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACHES HOW THEY BUILD RECOVERY INTO THE TRAINING PROGRAMS THEY PROVIDE THEIR ATHLETES.
