Tackle Your Tuesday: My Favorite Recovery Trick

image

Happy Tuesday Everyone!  Sometimes after I’ve had a good workout and done my cool down I can still can feel a little tension in my muscles. One of my favorite recovery tips is to stretch in the shower. If you can’t get to the gym to utilize a sauna, then this is a great way to do it on your own. Turn up the temperature a little more than normal (keeping the door cracked) and begin to stretch. Touch your toes, stretch your arms, roll you head around, etc. Hold each stretch for 5-7 seconds. Be careful though to have good footing because it can be a little slippery. The heat will increase circulation and flexibility in your muscles. The stretching will also make way for a speedy recovery in between workouts. Try it this week and see how it works for you!  As an extra bonus it also relaxes you before bedtime.

…. and on that note good night world. Lol!

Live. Love. Well & Fit.

P.S.
