Recovery

Here is an issue we see daily with many of our athletes. UNDER RECOVERY. A term that is usually mistaken for overtraining.

Many athletes no matter what the sport or activity, can easily fall into the trap of increasing there training sessions/loads/intensity in order to improve, which is great and encouraged, however injury may occur when proper recovery is not achieved.

Recovery is aided by stretching, foam rolling, ice/warm baths, active recovery etc, but the most important aspect of recovery is SLEEP and NUTRITION 😴🍌🥑🍳!

8-10 hours sleep is required along with the right foods worked around training. Something to think about and perhaps address..

One simple tip  Become good at listening to your body and weather you need that extra hour of sleep in the morning or more targeted carbs/proteins/fats throughout your day.
