    The goal of any elite athlete or coach is to maximize the training adaptations in order to achieve pinnacle performance during the competition. This involves the intricate, fluid, and progressive planning of temporary and permanent training variables and performance goals to elicit positive adaptations in response to periods of progressive overload, supplemented by periods of restoration with the goal of super-compensation. These strategic periods of restoration are defined as tapers, which are brief periods of reduced training load with the maintenance of training intensity before a planned performance with the aim of improving performance by dissipating the preceding accumulated fatigue and allowing super-compensation and adaptation, with greater preceding accumulated fatigue, the greater reduction in training load necessary.
