Recovery Time After Workouts And Games Is Critical

Posted Dec 30 2008 12:19am
I was listening to an interview of a professional football player the other question was this: "How do you keep your body prepared to meet the demands of your physical sport?" He said, "I get massages after every practice and game and I get as much rest as I can between workouts, games and practices."

This man performs at the elite level of the football profession---The National Football League! He is basically saying that recovery is just as important as the workouts or games. Recovery also includes getting the necessary nutrition for your body to rebuild itself stronger.

You can also do self massage with self myofascial release with foam rolls (SMFR). SMFR is like getting a massage. The foam roller is one of the most effective techniques for releasing tension while improving mobility. Foam rolling exercises will release and organize your muscles, as well as release and align your skeletal system. Muscle injuries such as strains and tears and broken bones can be avoided with proper flexibility and skeletal alignment. You'll immediately feel the effectiveness of SMFR and its something you can do every day at home.

Train hard and smart (recover)!
