5 tips to assist you with your recovery from training:
1. Get enough sleep!
This is one the big rocks of recovery. Your chances of injury are significantly higher if you are not getting enough sleep. Aim for AT LEAST 7-8 hours per night. Studies show that this will improve cognitive function, focus, decision making, energy and hormone regulation. All of these things can help with weight loss too!!!
This is also so, so important! Humans are made up of ~60% water. Making sure we are well hydrated helps with blood circulation & by flushing out toxins or other waste products out of the body. It also helps keep our skin supple and healthy, as well as helping keep our muscles and joints well lubricated.
3. Refuel with good nutrition
If you’re training, you need to eat to refuel your body and what you are depleting in your sessions. Adequate protein is a MUST, especially if you are strength training or training to build muscle.
4. Active recovery.
This can help in so many ways, including reducing the fatigue by products in the body, getting the blood circulating, improving cardiovascular health, and reducing stiffness & muscle soreness post-workout.
