Throughout this report every attempt has been made to ensure all practical applications are based on peer-reviewed evidence. Following an extensive review of existing literature and a needs analysis of the demands of the playing and training demands placed on professional rugby players it was decided that a one size fits all approach could not be applied and that depending on the specific goals of the various stages of the season a periodised recovery plan was required.
