Intense training mixed with a busy schedule can leave your body feeling quite fatigued. Achy muscles and stiffness can be a sign of progress, so why not speed up your recovery so that you can go again faster and harder!
Here are 4 staple tips to speed up the recovery process;
No matter what kind of exercise you do, your muscle will become damaged. This is particularly true with resistance training, especially when trying to build muscle. Protein helps to repair and rebuild the tissues of your body, including damaged muscle fibres. This is achieved by supplying your cells with protein building blocks called amino acids.
Sources of protein: Meats, Nuts, Eggs, Dairy and Whey Protein.
Curcumin is a key chemical in turmeric. It reduces pain, inflammation and stiffness after a tough workout and can even help to ease inflammation caused by injuries. Each of our turmeric shots contains 5 grams of turmeric, a highly potent formula for maximum results.
Carbohydrates are your muscle’s primary energy source, the higher the intensity level of the exercise the more your body relies on carbohydrates. After a workout is the best time to replenish your carbohydrate stores because your muscles absorb them like a sponge.
During exercise your body will use between 1-1.5 litres of water, this can lead to dizziness, dehydration, fatigue and impaired performance. Remember the golden rule if you’re thirsty you’re already dehydrated, so it’s important to make sure you are drinking enough water before, during and after exercise.
