TIPS TO SPEED UP RECOVERY AFTER A WORKOUT
Delayed muscle onset soreness can be rough! Don't let DOMS slow you down. Here are the best tips to speed up recovery so you can keep working toward your goals!
Dehydration can make soreness worse! Drink water to replace lost fluids, flush out toxins, and repair those muscles.
Don't skip your warmup! Just 5-10 minutes of dynamic stretching and light cardio can prevent DOMS later.
Protein helps to repair those tiny tears in your muscles. Aim for 0.5 to 0.8 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight daily. Eat your carbs too!
Consider splitting your workouts to train different muscle groups on different days - such as alternating upper/lower body or push/pull workouts.
The mind-body connection is a real thing! Reducing stress can improve your body's recovery time. Try yoga, meditation, or visualizing your body as strong and healthy.
No really - you need a rest day! To avoid overtraining and injury, take at least one rest day per week. Get plenty of sleep at night too!
