Recovering is a huge part of working out! We like to give some time at the end of each class to help promote recovery. Here are a few things that can help.
Foam Rolling: This massages the muscle fascia to help realign for better healing. It also increases range of motion and flexibility.
Roll up and back 10 times on each large muscle group post work out.
Stretching: This also helps the muscles to relax and realign tissue for proper healing.
Take a band and stretch each large muscle group 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side.
Nutrients for Recovery: Post work out nutrients are important in helping our bodies replenish and rebuild. A good source of proteins and carbohydrates along with vitamins and minerals will help aid recovery.
Fit aid is one of our favorite recovery drinks.
