#483: What Really Works for Exercise Recovery?
In the past few years, sports recovery has become a big business. Elite athletes and weekend warriors alike are spending lots of time and money on things like cryotherapy, float tanks, foam rolling, and supplements in order to feel better, push themselves harder, and gain an edge over the competition. But does any of this stuff actually do anything? My guest today spent a year investigating the science of exercise recovery. Her name is Christie Aschwanden and sheâ€™s the author of Good to Go: What the Athlete in All of Us Can Learn From the Strange Science of Recovery. We begin our show discussing what exactly athletic â€œrecoveryâ€ is and why the recovery business has been booming recently. Christie and I then dig into several different recovery modalities from drinking Gatorade, to taking ice baths, to foam rolling, and the science, or the lack thereof, behind their effectiveness. We end our conversation discussing what actually works best for exercise recovery (hint: you do it every night and itâ€™s free), whether you should spend your money on things like cryospas, and whether recovery methods can still be beneficial, even if they're largely based on the placebo effect.

10: Astana on fire
Thereâ€™s a lot of recent racing to cover in the latest episode of The Cycling Podcast, presented by Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe with Lionel Birnie in his sick bed. They discuss the astonishing run by Astana, who have dominated the early season, the Tour Colombia 2.1, which showcased the host countryâ€™s talent and its passion for the sport, and Team Skyâ€™s hunt for a replacement sponsor. Will the British team continue with a Colombian backer? Reports last week suggested so â€” but they were perhaps premature. We also discuss UAE Team Emirates, a team that has under-performed the last couple of seasons but which has made some new signings and had an overhaul of the backroom staff to try and address that. We hear from Jeroen Swart, their new medical director, about the changes and plans for 2019\. **The Cycling Podcast is supported by Rapha and Science in Sport.** **OUR SPONSORS Rapha** have launched their limited edition range of flyweight jerseys inspired by cycling's heartlands and new frontiers.
