Check Recovery Assessment

Are my athletes ready to perform? Have they recovered sufficiently?

Background Information

Two of the most powerful benefits of MuscleSound are the ability to ensure that

  • Your athlete is ready for their exercise ‘event’ 
  • Their recovery is sufficient for future events
1
Select Check Recovery from the menu
For recovery, scan at least one to two days after an event to see fuel values. If these are low, muscles are not at an optimal recovery status.
2
Scan Muscles of Interest
Both left and right thigh scans will provide the best snapshot of your bodies fuel. Add additional muscles groups as needed.
3
Design an intervention with the assistance of results
Summary statuses provide an overall view of current muscle fuel levels. MuscleSound will also consider the recent trend to give you a level of alertness.
Charts will also provide feedback on historical responses to your interventions. What was effective previously? How did their fuel respond?
It is also valuable to drill-down into a specific muscle group or muscle side to ask some questions about what could be the cause of abnormal results.
4
Schedule a follow-up
This is not really a calendar tool. Use the scheduling tool to help remind the subject/athlete of the prescribed intervention, have these results sent to them in a reminder to be sure they return for a follow-up. Validate interventions with a follow-up the next day or the day of the event.
5
Follow-up with another Check Recovery Assessment
Track and monitor the fuel response of your interventions. Modify as needed.

Results Provided

Overall Fuel Level

This is an average fuel level across all of the muscles included in this scanning session

Nutrition / Sleep / Recovery Status

MuscleSound uses the overall fuel level and the trend from the last session to determine a status. This result is an indication of the person's overall Readiness Status. Short descriptions and general advice are displayed here as well.
