Sore No More - 3 Tips To Maximize Recovery!Aug 09, 2021
We’ve all been there…
You crush a Stretchy Fit workout the day before..
Then wake up the next morning feeling like you got hit by a bus.
Soreness in muscles you didn’t even know existed.
Just like a car doesn’t run optimally when you do not care for it properly, neither does your body.
It’s important to be intentional about listening to your body and what it needs.
Here’s a few of my go-to tips for recovery that I HIGHLY recommend you start incorporating into your life to feel delicious from the inside out!
Relaxing your body through your mind first is the most powerful way to recover. When your mind is relaxed, your body can finally let go of all that tension, and then your body can do what it does best naturally - heal. Meditations are my secret weapon to taking my health, life, and career to levels I never thought were possible.
As a Stretchy Fit Member you get access to a collection of 35+ guided meditations to choose from to heal, overcome & relieve anything that you are facing (plus, I am always adding more.) You can start your free trial of the Stretchy Fit app and gain instant access to them here.
2) Stretch & Therapy Ball Release
Treat those sore muscles to some major TLC. One of my fav ways to show my body some extra love is using therapy balls. This has been a GAME CHANGER in my recovery. I have an entire library of classes in the Restorative category in the Stretchy Fit App that incorporate this deep tissue recovery. If you don’t have therapy balls yet, I got you, grab yours here!
One of the members FAV restorative classes to check out in your Stretchy Fit App is The Neck Release video with special guest instructor Dr. Liz Letchford!
3) Active Recovery
I know it may seem counterintuitive but moving your muscles MORE is extremely beneficial in recovery due to increased blood circulation which reduces soreness. Now I am not saying do a HIIT class, but go for a nice walk with your family or find a short restorative yoga flow inside your Stretchy Fit app.
Remember that if you want progress with your goals you need to prioritize rest and recovery for optimal results.
Use these tips to bounce back after your next workout and then jump back in fierce & fired up for your next Stretchy Fit workout!
