The importance of sleep in young athletes

Recovery after training is vital for all athletes, especially during childhood and adolescence, where the balance between training stress and physical recovery must be managed to maximize adaptation. As he explains Dr. Gonzalo Pin, “the repetitive and demanding nature of the season can test the physiological and psychological capacity of athletes, especially younger athletes, who must maintain a balance between stress and recovery and adopt recovery strategies that manage fatigue and enhance your recovery, as well as performance in your training and sports tests. The regulation of performance during exercise is increasingly interpreted as a process that involves both the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system, in which good rest plays an essential role in their harmonious coupling.

“In childhood and adolescence,” it concludes the sleep specialist at Quirónsalud Valencia,” Adequate sleep time, as well as quality sleep with correct rhythms, is essential for proper physical and neurocognitive development, as during certain phases of sleep the body releases a number of substances such as growth hormone and strengthening the immune system. which protects the child from infections, among others, which are essential at this stage of life”.
