Tips for speeding up recovery
Substitute high-intensity exercises with Isometrics and active recovery
Use a foam roller to reduce muscle tension
After an intense bout of exercise, foam rolling is thought to alleviate muscle fatigue and soreness (ie, Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness [DOMS]) and improve muscular performance. If you’re feeling pain or tightness post-workout, give your muscles a massage using a semi-soft foam roller. Spend at least 30-60 seconds minimum rolling your sore muscle groups in the morning and evening of the day following an intense work out.
Wear compression garments after your high intensity workout
Wearing compression garments increases increase the blood circulation and reduce blood lactate for a faster recovery cycle. For extreme workouts such as competitive sport or endurance events compression can be worn overnight to speed up the recovery process and reduce the effect of DOMS.
Supacore’s seamless, gradient compression offers a superior level of recovery benefits through a high density compression fabric that ensures a greater blood flow to remove toxins from muscles and reduce fatigue. Throw these on after your training session to ensure your back to your best the following day.
