The other side of stress
Stress can be good.
That's what exercise is right?
A stress on the body that allows us to move and feel better.
We adapt, grow and perform better
And sometimes stress can be bad.
We do need to listen to our bodies
If you are finding it hard to recover from your workouts
It may be time to rest
That could be complete rest
It could be having a massage
It could be performing a yoga routine or stretching routine
It could be a good focused foam rolling session
It may even be that you need to sleep a little bit more. You know, Have a power nap.
Listen to your body
What is it telling you?
On the flip side of the above. If you are really sore from a workout, the best thing you can do is get
moving again, a low intensity circuit or cardio session, even going for a walk, basically getting the
blood pumping again will revitalise your body.
Get blood pumping through those sore muscles
Stretch them out
Eat…so you are feeding the muscles too.
How do we feed them...?
Good quality nutrition.
Hit your macronutrients.
Some may benefit from BCAAs, protein shakes and potentially creatine.
If you would like to know more on ^^^ the above
Let me know.
All the best
