Summary: The topic of fatigue and recovery following competitive soccer match-play has gained considerable attention within the scientific literature, largely due to the demanding nature of modern-day fixture schedules and economic incentives associated with successful performance. Nevertheless, research to date has primarily focused on peripheral perturbations when examining the mechanisms of post-match fatigue and recovery, with little focus on the role of the central nervous system. Callum Brownstein will present research from his PhD, which aimed to gain greater insight into the aetiology of fatigue and impairments in neuromuscular function in the recovery period following soccer match-play.

Biography: Pedro Jimenez-Reyes is associate professor at the Rey Juan Carlos University of Madrid in Sport Sciences, with a focus to sprint, explosive movements and training.
