Rest and recovery are crucial aspects of any training program. However, one of the most overlooked aspects of any training program is recovery. Most of us just keep trying to push harder and harder to improve performance, when what we really need to do is focus on recovery. You cannot improve performance without being fully recovered. No matter what your training goal, if you keep pushing yourself harder and harder but keep falling short of your goal, then maybe you need to take a look at your recovery routine.
Rest and Recovery
There are several elements to recovery. The most important factor is sleep. Everyone has different sleep needs, but most people need between seven to ten hours of sleep per night. Another important factor is nutrition and hydration. Without the proper nutrition, your body will not recover as quickly if at all. The same thing goes for hydration. If you are not hydrating correctly, then your training will fall short because your body does not have what it needs to properly recover.
Recovering with Ice
Many people are also trying to recover from injuries. These injuries may be from a surgery, an injury much as a twisted ankle, or even delayed onset muscle soreness from an intense workout. The most effective treatment for injuries is the use of ice pack or an ice bath. Ice is a very popular treatment decreases blood flow to the affected area through the dilation of blood vessels and provides relief from pain and aids in recovery. However, now we can speed that process up with cryotherapy.
