The first decisive exploration of recovery science and the crucial role it plays in optimising training performance, debunking myths and falsehoods along the way.

All athletes from Olympians to weekend warriors must toe the line between training and recovery to maximise the benefits of workouts and reach optimal performance. For the longest time, coaches and training manuals have emphasised training. But now sports science is homing in on an even more fundamental part: recovery. The aim of training is to force the body to adapt to stress, and this adaptation is what makes you fitter and better able to perform. But to adapt, you need to optimise recovery too. You only benefit from training that you can recover from, and the ability to recover determines how much training your body can handle. Recovery, the science shows, is a crucial component of exercise training and it’s starting to look like it may be the most important one. Good to Go is the first definitive account of this new frontier in sports and exercise science. This developing science informs not only professional athletes and sports teams, but also people who are exercising for health or fitness and those who are aiming to take a little off their personal record. Good to Go will take readers on an intimate, light-hearted journey through the science of exercise recovery, from ice-baths and cryogenic freezing chambers to the science behind Usain Bolt’s love of chicken nuggets and Tom Brady’s recovery pyjamas. In the same vein as David Epstein’s The Sports Gene and Bill Gifford’s Spring Chicken, Good to Go assesses the science and claims of a wide variety of recovery methods and potions, and debunks the junk to give a clear picture of what we should actually be doing to look after our bodies better between exercising.

'... the most important book about training you’ll read this year.'
Alex Hutchinson, bestselling author of Endure

'This authoritative, delightful, and much-needed book slices through the hype around athletic recovery, and will surely cement Christie Aschwanden’s status as one of the world’s top science writers. Even if you’ve never run a race in your life, you’ll sprint through it. I laughed a lot, and learned even more.'
Ed Yong, bestselling author of I Contain Multitudes

'Christie Aschwanden is simply one of the best science writers in the world. Whether you’re striving for a personal best or simply wondering about that post-workout beer, Good to Go is the definitive tour through a bewildering jungle of scientific (and pseudo-scientific) claims that comprise a multi-billion dollar recovery industry.'
David Epstein, bestselling author of The Sports Gene
