For many years, I have played football day in day out and not really thought about the effects it is having on my body. If I'm not on the pitch, I'm in the gym. If I'm not in the gym, I'm at work coaching/teaching so I am forever on my feet. Over the last 2-3 weeks, I have started to feel like an 80 year old man in a 22 years old's body. I have started to pick up little knocks and niggles that is stalling my progress.👱🏼👀👵🏼 Regardless of whether you play a sport or just love working out, Incorporating recovery time into any training program is important. This is the time that the body adapts to the stress of exercise and the real training effect takes place. Recovery also allows the body to replenish energy stores and repair damaged tissues.💪🏋️ Here are a few things you need to do in order to recover the right way and maximise results; ✅Rehydrate💦 ✅Replenish energy resources 🍌 ✅Rebuild muscle💪 ✅Stretch 🤸‍♂️ ✅Get a good nights sleep!💤 Although it seems a lot; it's so simple to implement; Have a drink and food ready for when you finish, spend 10 minutes at the end of each session to stretch and make sure you get at least 8 hours sleep. These are subtle changes that will MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE!👊 #fitfam #fit #fitspo #fitness #exercise #recovery #restday #rest #workout #workhard #hardwork #healthy #healthylifestyle #muscle #stretching #football #soccer #nolimits #noexcuses #gym #gymlife #motivation #inspiration #inspo #instafit #instagramers #instafitness
