What is rest and recovery? How will it help your team?
If you’re an elite athlete, a weekend warrior, or just enjoy working out, you may be doing more than your body can handle. Whether or not you actually feel sore, it is likely that you are starting each day with a recovery deficit. If you’re not refreshed, you don’t feel like yourself, your performance can suffer, and you increase the chance of injury. This is why rest and recovery is important. During strenuous exercise or activity, muscles begin breaking down prior to getting stronger. It’s during the recovery phase that muscle builds and strength gains occur. If you’re training more than a few days a week, you’re likely not fully recovering, and therefore not getting the most out of each workout.
