🔸 Active Recovery goes beyond rest. While rest and getting 6-8 hours of sleep are important aspects of muscle repair and recovery, there are a variety of other activities that can contribute to your recovery after a week (or even a day) of training. 🔹
Need a few suggestions? Here are 4 great ones from Jody Clegg:
️ Epsom Salt Bath: This is a fantastic way to help muscles recover as the salts help alleviate soreness, as well as drawing toxins from the body.
️ Walking: While this might seem counterintuitive, walking keeps the muscles active without the heavy/high impact.
️ Infrared Sauna: Similar to the salt baths, the sauna aids in detoxification, helps relieve muscle soreness, and also helps with blood circulation and skin health/resiliency.
️ Float Tanks: Float tank therapy is great to relieve stress and aids relaxation. Improved sleep and reduced anxiety are also benefits of floating.
🧘♂️ With all the options out there it's really a matter of trying them, and figuring out which feels best for you. 🧘♂️
