Simple Recovery Ideas that you can implement today

Posted by GaelicPerformance on

  1. Cool Down Properly - Not a Quick Stretch, but a light jog until your heart rate comes back to its normal resting rate, followed by light stretching of the main muscles
  2. Take a Recovery Shake immediately after training - A 2:1 Carbs to Protein Shake is the ideal, as it will help repair broken down muscle, as well as restoring your glycogen levels
  3. Drink 1-2 litres of water within 1-2 hours of finishing exercise - Drink your water over a period of time, rather than all in one go
  4. Eat a fully balanced ( Protein, Carbs, Fat) meal as soon as you can 
  5. Use Compression Leggings - Compression wear has been proven to aid recovery by increasing blood flow, which will help restore glycogen levels and remove metabolic waste
  6. Foam Roller - Light Foam Rolling has been shown to help remove "knots" from your muscles
  7. Use an EMS(ElectroMuscleStimulation) Device - Has been proven to aid recovery by activating the " Second Heart" in the Calf, which helps to restore glycogen levels and remove metabolic waste
