How to Help Your Body Recover After a Work-Out

With so much importance placed on the right workout and building muscle it can be hard to remember that your body doesn't stop working when you do. If you're looking to get the most out of your workout, Athletic Republic Humble has put together three easy to follow tips to get your started on the road to post-session recovery. 


Stretch It Out

If there's one thing that you should do after your workout and before you hit the sauna or the shower, it's stretch.  When planning for your next session, take into account some extra time and dedicate it to stretching. While it's important to stretch your whole body, pay close attention to the areas you just exercised, especially any parts that you felt were tight or restrictive.

The Jacuzzi Isn't Just for Parties

If your training center has a jacuzzi, use it. Resting your body after a workout in a jacuzzi is the perfect way to increase blood circulation and promote muscle recovery. If you have a private tub at home, speak with your trainer about any bath additives that you can use to help relax and soothe your muscles.

Don't Stop Hydrating

There's no doubt that hydration plays an important part of your workout and performance, however just because you've stopped lifting weights doesn't mean that you should stop lifting that glass of water. After a session, stay hydrated with water or a specifically designed sports drink that your trainer has approved to help your body stay hydrated post workout.
