Need up to 30 seconds to load.
I tell my athletes put in the same effort into recovery that you do into
your training session. There's different tools and strategies that we use to try
to speed up that recovery process. Number one sleep trying to get eight to ten
hours of sleep at night. Every minute of sleep before midnight is worth two
minutes of sleep after midnight. Second thing we do is self massage so using
foam rollers sticks tennis balls softballs things like that to do some
self massage workout knots that they may have built up through practice and
competition. The third thing we talked about would be stretching whether that's
dynamic stretching or static stretching going through ranges of motion to make
sure that we ensure tissue quality and tissue in length getting it back to its
normal length it's critical. The fourth thing would be hydrotherapy returning
the shower to as cold as they can take her for 30 seconds and back up to high
and that contrast back and forth really helps to flush and get rid of soreness.
The fifth thing would be nutrition what we put into our body can help us rebuild
repair and recover for the next workout and the timing of when we take that in
really help speed up the recovery process.
