This week we would like to focus on an aspect that often gets overlooked or neglected in the training process: regeneration. Planned days off may already be part of your weekly plan, but what are you doing to aid the regeneration of your body? Active recovery helps to promote blood flow to the tissues and allows more access to oxygen, food, and waste disposal. This helps the tissue recover faster and ensures that the body is ready to work out again starting from 100%. Active recovery comes in many forms. Below are a few suggestions that you may be familiar with.
● Foam Rolling
● Light to Moderate Activity
● Contrast Baths
Still have questions as to how to get the most out of your regeneration? Remember that Dr.
