Rest and Recovery

Rest and recovery is often overlooked in the strength and conditioning world. When we workout we place stress on our muscles and central nervous system – in order to recover from that stress we need to give our bodies time to rest.

There are several ways we can help our body recover from the demands of training – adequate sleep, proper nutrition, hydration, foam rolling, mobilizing, etc. We can control these factors and prioritize them for proper recovery. Taking 5 minutes after training to down-regulate (foam roll, breath-work, stretching) can help speed up the recovery process.

Without rest our body can not function properly. What we do outside of the gym is just as important for long term progress and sustainability.
