Rest & Recovery

Recuperation

Rest and recovery are critical components of any successful training program. They are also the least planned and underutilized ways to enhance performance. Defined as a combination of sleep and time spent not training, rest is the easiest to understand and implement.

Recovery refers to techniques and actions taken to maximize your body’s repair. These include hydration, nutrition, posture, heat, ice, stretching, stress management, compression, and time spent standing versus sitting versus lying down. Recovery encompasses more than just muscle repair, recovery involves chemical and hormonal balance, nervous system repair, mental state, and more.

We have different systems that need to recover. These include hormonal, neurological, and structural. Our structural system includes muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones. Muscles recover the quickest because they receive direct blood flow. Tendons, ligaments, and bones receive indirect blood flow and therefore can take longer to recover and be more susceptible to over-training stress.
