TOUGH WORKOUT? HERE'S HOW TO RECOVER
A heated tennis game, hiking with friends, or weightlifting at the gym - whatever your exercise of choice is, we're sure you're no stranger to post workout fatigue. While we have to admit that the 30Fifteen team kind of likes the stiff muscles (it's a reminder that we worked hard on the court), we can't stand it when the soreness affects our game. That's why we thought we would share our post workout recovery tricks, so you can get back on the court faster.
Two words: STAY HYDRATED
If you've been working hard, you've probably been sweating hard too, and you've therefore lost a lot of your body's water content and electrolytes. Be sure to drink lots of water to keep your body hydrated.
Don't skip the stretching
Post workout stretching is super important to maintaining muscle pliability and reducing soreness. Also, increasing your flexibility can help prevent injuries at you next workout.
Eat a banana!
Or a potato. Really anything high in potassium will work, as potassium, along with nutrients such as sodium and calcium plays a big role in muscle energy and may reduce soreness.
Catch some Z's
Remember that getting at least 8 hours is important not only for your recovery but for your overall health as well. It keeps your body healthy and your brain sharp!
Try your best to reduce stress in your life. Stress changes the way you feel overall, and it can leave you with insomnia, achy muscles, and a compromised immune system, which is obviously going to affect your exercise routine.
Recovery is essential for getting back to your workout routine, so make sure you take it as seriously as you take the actual exercise. In the mean time, share this post on your socials, so your friends can benefit as well.
