The importance of recovery
Recovery is an essential part of any exercise or physical activity. It is the time when your body repairs itself and gets ready for the next challenge. Without proper recovery, you risk overtraining, fatigue, and injury. To help your recovery, book an appointment with Kamloops Kinesiologist Alexa Cochran
Recovery is not just a matter of rest and relaxation. It also involves nutrition, hydration, and active recover. All these activities help to reduce muscle soreness, improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and increase mobility. They also help to restore energy levels so that you can perform at your best during your next workout session.
The length of your session needs to be the perfect length to get the most benefits out of your training and increase your fitness levels. If you take too long recovery then the fitness level return back to baseline and you will be starting over. If you don’t take enough time between then you won’t fully recover to bring you up to optimal levels of fitness and your baseline will keep declining.
