Recovery is a key ingredient to your recipe for becoming a bad ass. It's super fun to come into the gym, crush the workout, pick up heavy stuff, or drag a heavy sled. However, if you're not taking active steps to recover from your workout, you are not receiving the full benefits of your training. Here are three key recovery practices. We will discuss more in the next Fitness Friday blog post.
1. Get 8 hours of sleep. Some research suggests that if you get less than 8 hours of sleep, you can expect only a 50% adaptation to your training. Sleep is that important! It is the only time in which your body can repair, produce certain hormones, and do all of the important physiological functions that your body needs to incorporate your fitness training. Some research suggests that a 2-5 hour sleep deficit has the same deleterious health impacts as smoking 5-10 cigarettes a day.
Some of the ways you can improve your sleep:
3. Eat 2 -3 hours before training and consume a post-workout (PWO) meal within 1 hour after training. The PWO meal can be a protein and carbohydrate drink (such as SFH Recovery or Fuel), sweet potatoes and egg white muffins, or some of these great PWO meals.
