Another key element in performing our best this season is recovery. The most important thing about recovery is finding a routine that works for you. Try different things until you find what makes your body feel the best. The better and quicker you can recover, the harder you can train. Once you find the routine that works best for you, be consistent. Try to dedicate at least 30 minutes a day to your recovery routine. Being disciplined with your recovery will give you longevity in the sport and help your body break down less over time.
Below I have created a list of recovery items that you can incorporate into your routine. The top list are the essentials. These are things that should be in everyone’s daily recovery routine. The bottom list includes supplementary methods. These are great things to try out if you have additional time or want to focus on a specific recovery area.
Epsom salt bath
Active recovery (light warmup, underwater treadmill, Alter-G)
If you are interested in learning more about a specific recovery method in the list above let me know in the comments, and I will cover it in more detail in the next newsletter.
