Drinkng eight 8 ounce glasses of water a day is generally sufficient for most individuals, but not nearly enough if you are physically active or an athlete. Ensure you are drinking water throughout the day and even more during intense exercise or every day activities. Properly hydrated muscles
will perform better and keep muscles from reaching exhaustion, which can lead to injury and slower recovery. Also, dehydration not only affects physical performacne, but also cognitive performance as well, so be sure to drink up. 2. Warm Up & Stretch:
A warm up usually consists some light exercises and stretching to prepare your muscles for activity. Both are important for an optimal performacne as you are elevating your body temperature and slowly preparing your body for physical exhertion. Stretching, helps minimize injury
becuase your muscles need warmth to achieve optimal length. Also, your ligaments and tendons become more flexible, reducing the chance of tears.
3. Alter Your Workouts:
It’s important to make sure you give your muscles a rest, but you don’t have to stop working out altogether. For example, if you’re working out your upper body one day, workout your lower body the next. This allows for proper rest intervals between muscle groups.
4. Wear Incrediwear:
Traditional methods for recovery such as compression are increasingly becoming less sought after for accelerating recovery from acute and/or chronic injuries. Incrediwear’s active recovery products reduce inflammation and swelling, relieve pain, and accelerate recovery from various conditions such as Arthritis, Tendonitis, Carpal Tunnel, muscle fatigue, sprains/strains, and pre/post surgery. Wearing incrediwear while training, post workout and when asleep will keep blood flowing to your trained muscles accelerating their recovery. Becuase most sports involve you leg muscles, Performacne Pants
and Recovery Leg Sleeves
are great choices. 5. Massage: Massaging muscles
helps reduce muscle tension, improves sleep, boosts immunity, increase joint flexibility, improve range of motion, and release endorphins
. Simply make an appointment with a massage therapist, use foam roller, and/or follow simple self massage
Getting a good nights rest is incredibly important for helping muscles recover.
It is easy to get caught up watching late night TV or hanging out with freinds and family, but remain dicsiplined about the time you go to sleep and your muscles will thank you for it.
7. Electrolytes Replenishment:
Your body loses electrolytes during exercise from perspiring. Helping your muscles recover after a great workout include
consuming foods and drinks containing sodium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium. Replenishing electrolytes daily upkeeps your nervous system’s ability to contract your muscles and maintain fluid balance.
