En este texto, Hirigoyen aborda los abusos cometidos contra las personas que están en situación de debilidad o que se sienten débiles aún sin serlo, y que acaban permitiendo que personas sin escrúpulos las utilicen y se aprovechen de ellas.

A partir de la ley sobre el abuso de la debilidad, la autora analiza las situaciones en las que un individuo se “aprovecha” de una persona vulnerable o demasiado crédula. Un estafador que se aprovecha de la debilidad de una mujer para sonsacarle dinero; una anciana que convierte a un joven atento en su heredero, una esposa abandonada que persuade a sus hijos de que su padre no les quiere ; un hombre rico y poderoso que fuerza una relación sexual con una subordinada, y todos los chantajes afectivos que perturban nuestras vidas... Y tantos otros casos que demuestran que el abuso de la debilidad se ejerce en todos los ámbitos de las relaciones humanas. Personas mayores, niños, adultos en situación de sometimiento psicológico: ¿dónde comienza la influencia normal y sana, y dónde comienza la manipulación?

Basándose en su experiencia clínica, la autora esclarece el concepto de consentimiento y las derivaciones de conductas calificadas a menudo de “inapropiadas”; una palabra cuya imprecisión nos indica, tal vez, hasta qué punto estamos indefensos ante la cuestión de los límites.

Sin embargo, al final de su precisa e inspirada investigación, Marie-France Hirigoyen nos revela que, pese a este panorama descorazonador, el status de víctima no es irreversible y puede superarse con la voluntad de afrontar el problema y con el apoyo social adecuado.

In today's competitive sport environment, discovering effective methods of facilitating optimal athletic performance is paramount to success. The recovery period is essential in maintaining athletes' physical and psychological well-being and crucial in the pursuit of intense physical training and satisfying performances. "Recovery for Performance in Sport" presents techniques and modalities currently used to enhance athletes' recovery, optimize training time, and avoid overtraining. Edited by members of l'Institut National du Sport, de l'Expertise et de la Performance (INSEP), Christophe Hausswirth, and Inigo Mujika, the text encompasses the latest scientific research in the study of recovery and draws from the experience of applied sport scientists working with elite athletes in leading performance and recovery centers. Readers will find proven strategies for enhancing the recovery process and learn the importance of structuring an individualized and evidenced-based recovery plan for improving performance.

Appealing to a broad audience encompassing professionals, athletes, coaches, and students, "Recovery for Performance in Sport" provides a scientific base of information as well as specific elements that allow for practical application in the real world. More than 30 international professionals contributed to chapter content, including case studies of international athletes and coaches. These case studies complement the scientific explanations by bringing additional context to the discussion of safe recovery modalities and how to apply those concepts to specific sports. Cutting-edge research and techniques allow readers to maximize the recovery of their athletes by learning from the proven strategies of international experts.

"Recovery for Performance in Sport" is divided into four parts, each presenting scientific knowledge, practical applications, and related case studies. The first two parts focus on the physiology of optimal training, how to prevent overtraining, and how to peak for optimal performance. Part III is a discussion of current recovery modalities along with strategies for optimizing recovery through the combination of modalities. Focusing on recovery at the muscular level, this part discusses nutrition strategies, electrostimulation, compression, massage, and immersion procedures, among others.

Part IV of the text considers situations that offer unique variables to consider when choosing recovery techniques. Differences between men and women in postexercise recovery are detailed along with a current discussion of thermoregulatory responses and adaptations to exercise and heat stress. Consideration is also given to the interventions used to alleviate thermal strain and the limitations of various recovery strategies after exercise in the heat. The physiological responses to altitude exposure and its impact on performance and various factors related to recovery are also discussed along with practical recommendations to facilitate altitude adaptation and recovery.

Recovery is one of the least understood and most under-researched components of the exercise-adaptation cycle. Yet, the importance of the recovery period cannot be overstated considering that athletes spend more time in recovery than in active training and that many adaptations to training take place during the recovery period. The current knowledge and applied information featured in "Recovery for Performance in Sport" will assist readers in improving the recovery process to help athletes achieve easier adaptation to training loads, lower their risk of overload and injury, and ultimately improve athletic performance.
