Athletes and the off-season For many amateur athletes, the off-season presents the perfect time to relax after a long year. It poses an opportunity to rest and recover from the aches and pains that comes with playing competitive sport, taking advantage of the extra time that is now available and the additional light at the end of the day. However, what are the implications involved in doing nothing before the following preseason? Training cessation (termed detraining) can have significant effects on the physical qualities that you have worked hard to achieve over the long season. Numerous studies have shown that the strength and power qualities of athletes can decrease quite significantly (1, 2, 3). One study found that strength and power measures decreased by 9% and 17% respectively in only 4 weeks of detraining! (4). Detraining also reduces the stability and proprioception of joints (6). So while you may feel as though you are helping your injury, you may be setting yourself up for future recurring issues. Furthermore, detraining can also have significant effects on endurance performance in athletes. It’s been shown that blood volume, stroke volume, VO2 max and heart rate are all negatively impacted by detraining (5). So, what’s the best way to go about the off-season? The National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA) recommends having a period of about 10-14 days of rest post-season to recover from any bumps, bruises and general muscle soreness. After that, it is recommended that athletes undergo a movement analysis and begin some type of training, with a larger emphasis placed on strength training. Strength training is perfect for the off-season, as it is low impact and more effective when less aerobic activity is being performed. Strength training also prevents any detraining that may have occurred otherwise and improves your physical performance, ensuring that you place your best foot forward once pre-season training kicks off. The off-season is the perfect opportunity to actively address any issues that may have resulted from the past season. These issues, if not addressed, can have profound impacts on joint range, placing you at a significantly higher risk of re-injury. Furthermore, if a previous injury has been immobilised and not properly rehabbed, joint stability and proprioception may be affected, further increasing the risk of injury. Addressing these weaknesses plays a major role in bulletproofing your body for the upcoming season, keeping you on the park as much as possible. Once these issues have been addressed, you really have the freedom to work on improving the physical qualities that help you perform at your best. These attributes may differ from person to person, based on factors such as sport played, position and current level of fitness. Working on these qualities will help provide you with the best opportunity to reach the next level in your sporting performance. However, it is important to recognise that if you jump to this step without addressing any movement issues, more deficiencies will arise in your movement and injury risk will, again, increase. If you have any questions regarding the best approach to your off-season/pre-season periods, come in and have a chat with us about how you can take your game to the next level. (1) Tucci, J.
