Ensuring you are eating enough nutrient rich foods, as well as avoiding too much sodium to prevent water retention will be key. Try standing under a cold shower (around 12 degrees celsius) for 1 minute and then turning up the temperature (to around 40 degrees celsius) for 3 minutes. Repeat four times.

The hot water helps. Take cold baths or apply ice packs It’s said that applying ice to the area speeds up muscle recovery time by reducing temperature, blood flow and inflammation in the tissue. A common practice used by athletes, also known as cold water immersion or.

Eat Foods Rich In Potassium. In terms of post-workout food, potassium-rich foods should be high up in your list. As well as protein, potassium is a key nutrient in your post-workout recovery regime, and it’s a fundamental mineral that plays a key role in muscular energy. Two methods that I predominantly incorporate are: a) the Kotts method 4-6 hours after a workout as a double split method (i.e. 10 sets of 10 seconds high intensity followed by 50 seconds of rest is Kotts’ protocol used by Francis and others to promote strength gains of up to 20%), or b) the primary method I use is a low intensity pulsating.

Muscle Recovery Do’s. Now, here are the big do’s you want to do as you approach proper muscle recovery.

How should you train, eat, rest, and hydrate to speed muscle recovery and performance after exercise? How many carbs should you eat? When. After intense training or hard races, our runners’ legs are asking for full recovery. Your body needs rest days and proper recovery to perform on point again the next time you lace up and sweat.

This is the only way you’ll become more powerful for your next workout. To make sure that you will benefit from your recovery, it’s important to know a couple of things about recovery for runners. Recovery is an important part of any fitness journey, but it’s not always the most exciting. That’s why today’s Trainer Tips video is bringing you 6 simple strategies to help you speed up your.

  • Thank you for all of your well informed advise. You are one of my top (3) YouTube trainers, it will be a year in February. Yes, it took my body a week to recover, I almost made a doctors appointment because I just thought something else was going on. I wasn’t happy about not being able to work out, but I didn’t press it. I just performed some light lifting (5lb) dumbbells to keep my muscle warm.

  • I for the most part don’t do the same thing on a regular basis, Am I killing myself for nothing? I watch three different people you, feroce and huniston and try and incorporate different techniques into my workout. Plus like huniston says I have shiny object syndrome. I will say this though I really enjoy the way you present your videos your very humble!

  • In prison I noticed about once a month when I would work out chest, walking out the yard I would feel like I was going to have a PR day and then when I came down to bench pressing, the weight would feel extra heavy…. same old weight not like I jumped in weight or anything but it would just feel way heavier and it’s just terrible for morale and I never quite understood why it would happen
