Have you ever woken up a day or two after a workout feeling stiff and achey? Here are our top tips to reduce soreness:
1️⃣ JUST MOVE (no pun intended!). While it may seem counter-intuitive to move when you’re sore, one of the best ways to reduce soreness is to incorporate some gentle movement into your day. Looking for a mobility routine? The Mobility Recovery program has got you covered with a variety of mobility workouts to help reduce soreness.
2️⃣ HYDRATE. Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. If you’ve been sweating a lot during your workouts, it’s also a great idea to sip on a drink that will replenish your electrolytes. An easy way to gauge your hydration level is to look at your urine color. If it is a pale yellow or lighter, you are most likely hydrated enough!
3️⃣ NOURISH. Be sure to fuel your body with nutritious and delish food throughout the day.
4️⃣ SLEEP. Getting quality sleep is one of the best ways to help your body recover well and as fast as possible.
